Who We Are

Prairie Land is a volunteer-run organization providing by-appointment mediation services. We are a nonprofit organization established since 2008 to provide residents of Champaign-Urbana and surrounding communities with the option to resolve disputes themselves; voluntarily, nonviolently, inexpensively and within a safe space in our community.
We strive to reduce court congestion, promote 
peaceful alternatives to litigation and provide education, training and volunteer opportunities for community members in conflict resolution and prevention. Our mediation services can save participants at least $1,250 in lawyer fees for similar services. 

Services We Offer 


Mediation is an informal process in which a neutral third party helps people in conflict negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement. Learn more about the mediation process or you can Contact Us to schedule a mediation session.

Very Important Notes:

  • Please call us at least 2 weeks before your next court date, if possible.
  • A volunteer answers the phone between 3 PM - 5 PM everyday. Leave a message with a record of your request and someone will answer during those times. Emailing your request to info@plmediation.org is also appropriate. 
  • PLCMC is not an arm of the Champaign County court or court record system and we do not archive signed agreements for client request. All document requests are made through court
  • All mediation sessions are strictly confidential. There contents are never disclosed to attorneys and letters are only ever sent to the presiding judge.
  • Unsigned agreements are not kept on file for more than 24 hours.

"We see every conflict as an opportunity."
