It’s Our 45th Anniversary!


What started out in 1976 as an experiment in social justice is now the longest-running community mediation center in the United States.

Let’s celebrate Community Boards’ extraordinary accomplishments! There are many ways for all to participate, learn, and celebrate as we plan and prepare for our next 45 years of peacemaking and restorative justice in San Francisco.

Become a Sponsor

All are invited to sponsor Community Boards’ 45th Anniversary events. We are trying something new. We are asking that sponsors join at a level that is best for them, between $250 and higher. Sponsorships will support our Neighborhood Mediation Program. We do not turn anyone away for lack of funds. It costs about $250 to provide one mediation.

Sponsors’ names or logos will appear in all of the 45th Anniversary promotional materials. We’ll be so appreciative! Become a sponsor here.
