AI Episode Summary
Devin Thorpe introduces DG Mawn as a great peacemaker and the US peacemaker of the year.
NAFCM (National Association of Mediation) was founded almost 30 years ago by community mediators inspired by the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
The organization focuses on creating opportunities for peace, justice, and engagement in communities.
NAFCM formed associations throughout the country to amplify voices and aggregate wisdom.
The organization has nine hallmarks, including anchoring in the community, relating with alternative systems for justice, and working to make systems responsive to the community.
The current challenging time in the United States is characterized by deep divisions, but the country has always had significant tensions.
The key to bridging these divisions is recognizing shared values, such as the desire to be heard, to be safe, and to be connected.
DG Mawn's superpower is helping people remember who they are, who they want to be, and that they can be who they want to be.
The superpower is cultivated by being still, listening, and journaling to reflect on thoughts and learnings.

As we gear up for the 1:00 PM Eastern, December 19, meeting of the Impact Cherub Club, we invite you to join us. The club is an informal gathering of friends who meet up to review impact investments everyone is eligible to make, and virtually anyone can afford. We share responsibility for completing basic due diligence before making investments. No one is required to invest.
There are no dues or fees to participate, and we don’t touch the money. When members invest, they do so directly for their own accounts. We benefit from new members only by the fresh perspectives they bring. Please join us!
