The Mediation Society will present its next Dinner on Thursday, March 9, 2006 at La Suite Restaurant, 100 Brannan Street, San Francisco. Jay Folberg and Lester Levy will speak on “”Black Farmers ADR.”” A class action lawsuit brought by Black farmers against the United States Department of Agriculture resulted in a settlement that is described by the press as “”the most significant civil rights case ever to go to mediation.”” The federal government was obliged to pay out billions of dollars to African American farmers who suffered discrimination and it “”is the largest civil rights settlement in history.”” We hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a most interesting evening. The cost of the dinner is $65 per person and members may bring guests. For reservations, contact Jaye Stedman of The Mediation Society at or by phone at 415 388-7094.n
