Addressing Historical and Contemporary Inequities
Online in Zoom
Online in Zoom

As we continue to grapple with the uncertainty of a global pandemic, people across our Nation have taken to the streets and boardrooms to demand change around inequities and their devastating effects. In addition, the media is saturated with stories about the impact on health, wealth and relationships of intergenerational traumatic events. However, for Black, Indigenous and other people of color, these stories in the form of news or social media posts are more than just stories--they are examples of their lived experiences enduring trauma, historically and currently, which have led and will continue to lead to health and other social disparities. Please join us as we explore the historical and contemporary inequities faced by Black, indigenous and other people of color, the impacts these inequities have on those we support, the impact on staff, and the trauma-informed, resilience-oriented strategies for how to address these impacts at the individual and community level to build a future that promotes healing and resilience. Participants will be able to: 1. Define intergenerational trauma and complex trauma 2. Describe the impacts trauma has on individuals communities, staff and organizations 3. Explain three trauma-informed, resilience-oriented strategies to address the impacts
