Moving Toward Healing
Racial Equity as Foundational to
Trauma-Informed Communities in North Carolina
Wednesday, June 16
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Free & Open to the Public
Racial equity is more than a “line item” and is essential to all trauma-informed communities work. Join the Trauma-Informed Communities Project to learn 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. This will be a brave space to deepen awareness, promote action, and celebrate the impressive trauma-informed work of seven counties from across the state.
We welcome keynote speakers Ernestine Briggs-King, PhD, and Kim Pevia, as well as panelists Justin J. Adams, PhD, Anthony Andrews, PhD, LCMHC-S, LCAS, CRC, and Karen Barbee, EdD, LCMHCS, LCAS.
This summit may be of particular interest to child and family service providers in these systems: mental health, medical, courts, juvenile justice, schools, early childhood, faith communities, and more.
