Conflict Revolution studies and practice self-aware communication skills and conflict support from a revolutionary, anarchist, and abolitionist perspective. Intentional education in these skills has an inherently anarchist-feminist root as it reduces the burden of mediation on those socially expected to be more emotionally intelligent (generally non-men). We aim to develop and share skills needed for communities to resolve their own conflicts through readings, discussions, and practicing existing conflict mediation techniques.

About Us

We met regularly from August through December 2017 (a.k.a Season 1) and have been on hiatus since them. Season 2 is set to begin March 28th!

Because we don't meet at a public location, Conflict Revolution is a semi-closed group. If you're interested in joining us, attend a General Assembly or a MACC_Anarchx-Feminist public meeting.

Season 2 - Syllabus & Schedule

We'll be meeting every other Wednesday starting March 28th.
