This year has been challenging for most everyone. It has resulted in many in our community experiencing difficult choices and needing to depend on area food banks to feed their families. Therefore, the ACR Houston joins the Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA) and the Texas Association of Mediators (TAM), in lieu of our annual Festivus for the Rest of Us celebration, to encourage our members to help feed the hungry through the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen or the Houston Food Bank; honoring the memories of Judge Frank Evans and Joe Bontke. ACR Houston will match your dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 total, when you submit your donation using the link below by January 15, 2021.

Judge Frank Evans, commonly recognized as the “Father of ADR,” passed away in November 2019. Joe Bontke, EEOC and civil rights champion known lovingly as Santa every Christmas, passed away in October 2019. Joe co-founded the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen to serve the less fortunate in Downtown Houston.
