Jim's advisory work includes identifying the root and nature of specific social and civic problems, assessing the factors which promulgate those problems, proposing solutions that meet relative cultural differences, and creating ethical and lawful action plans for municipal bureaus, police services, and other institutions. His work on these programs resulted in the lecture series “Establishing a Culture of Harmony in the Presence of Dissonance“ which presents and promotes an Ethics of Right-Relations for community diversity and peacemaking.

He presents these lectures at professional conferences and universities in the USA, Canada, UK, and Europe.
