Leora Effinger-Weintraub is a mediator and conflict coach, artist, and creator. Through their work with people in conflict they have seen how conflict can transform relationships and communities. Finding the ways for this transformation to be positive and life-affirming is their chosen work. They are a mediator and conflict coach with the Conflict Resolution Center in Minneapolis. They work weekly with recently homeless youth, teaching conflict skills and helping them find ways to resolve conflict in healthy ways. They have co-created harmony restoration processes with and for their local pagan community, and have consulted with others looking for ways to engage openly with and move smoothly through conflict. In their art, they touch on themes of peace, conflict engagement, resilience, social justice, paganism, and mental health, with the goal of sparking deep thought and action from those who engage with it.
