Virtual NC Trauma-Informed Communities Project Summit
Moving Toward Healing: Racial Equity as Foundational to Trauma-Informed Communities in North Carolina | Flyer | Register
June 16, 2021, 9am-3pm
As we look toward collective healing in North Carolina, the NC Trauma-Informed Communities (TIC) Project believes that racial equity is more than a “line item” and is essential to all trauma-informed communities work. This summit is open to the public, and invites everyone who has an interest in learning more about community-driven approaches that build mutually beneficial relationships within and across communities, authentically share power with partners, and use storytelling to address racial, historical, and community trauma in North Carolina. In addition to community members, this summit may be of particular interest to child and family service providers from a variety of organizations including, but not limited to: mental health, medical, court systems, schools, early childhood, juvenile justice systems, and faith communities, to name a few.
We are excited to offer a brave space to explore this imperative topic with your NC community through multiple sessions, including two keynote speakers, an expert panel discussion, and community stories to deepen awareness, promote action, and celebrate the impressive trauma-informed work of seven counties from across the state.
This event is free and open to all NC communities.
