October is Conflict Resolution Month, and this year marks the 30th anniversary of the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center (WDRC). In honor of this the WDRC is hosting its second-annual month long promotion called Dine Out for Peace. The WDRC is a non-profit organization that works to help the Whatcom County community approach conflict in creative and healthy ways.

Close to 30 Whatcom County restaurants, brewpubs, and coffee houses have joined with the WDRC to promote peace and to support the local small business community. Participating businesses will donate a portion of proceeds to support the efforts of the WDRC to achieve its mission of providing and promoting constructive and collaborative approaches to conflict. Dine Out for Peace will culminate in the 19th annual Peace Builder Awards presented by Peoples Bank and PSE on October 21.

“We are excited to participate in Dine Out for Peace during the month of October,” said Layne Carter, Operations Manager of Aslan Brewing. “The work of the WDRC is so vital to the health and vitality of our community. Inclusivity, resilience and collaboration are at the heart of our business, especially during this time, and the WDRC represents this.”
