About Us

Resolution Washington is the member association for Dispute Resolution Centers (DRCs) in Washington State. We’re dedicated to bringing conflict resolution services and promoting dialogue in communities across the state by:

  • Sharing ideas for improving management and services at our local DRCs
  • Establishing statewide policies, standards and best practices
  • Supporting and advocating for mediation in Washington



We envision a State where Dispute Resolution Centers or collaborative processes are used as the first choice for conflict resolution. The Dispute Resolution Centers are stable, valued, and supported as a key means to provide a civil and respectful society.





  • Build and maintain statewide relationships;
  • Provide mutual support and assistance;
  • Optimize use of resources to provide support and promote community mediation; and
  • Advocate for the welfare of community mediation.
