It’s Wednesday and time for our Neighbors in Action segment, where we feature people and organizations working to make our community a better place. Today, we feature the Resolution Services Center of Central Michigan (RSCCM). The Lansing-based non-profit offers peaceful conflict resolution services for businesses, individuals and schools in six Mid-Michigan counties.

Linda Glover, the center's director, says that while many clients come in angry and frustrated, they end up amazed because they're the ones developing a resolution that's good for both parties.

Alecia Ruswinckel, a volunteer mediator, says arbitration is more akin to a trial, while mediation involves the parties coming together to facilitate a solution on their own.

We could always use more nominations and we know there are people and organizations out there that are doing excellent work and we just don’t know about them. Please help us out and tweet us at @KARCurrentState or send us an email to Put “Neighbors in Action” in the subject line and tell us why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
