About

Developed in 2008, the Veteran-Civilian Dialogue™ (VCD) program is a powerful form of community building and social healing. The program addresses the cost of conflict in our society by providing meaningful tools for reconciliation and healing. VCDs are live events that bring veterans and civilians together in facilitated conversations around the impact of war and other issues affecting both groups. Life-altering for those who attend, the Dialogues are healing for the larger elements of communities brought together through the process. Read more.
