Hostility and Awkwardness

I'm part of a group of volunteers who run a community organization in our neighborhood. One of them just sent out an email suggesting a meeting with me, A, and B to figure out ways to make A's and B's jobs easier...and so far their response has been kind of hostile. I'm watching this and cringing and not sure what to do. I sort of understand why A and B are hostile; the woman who sent out the email is making changes (supported by the majority of the rest of us) that will make their jobs more complicated. But these are good changes and she is just trying to help make things easier. Should I try to mediate? Or should I stay out of it, since I work most closely with A and B, and having them feel good about me will make things easier for me going forward?
