Community Trauma Conference

Rooted in Community: Moving from Trauma to Healing

Join us as we focus on the root causes of trauma, and explore how we journey to healing in our homes, communities and nation.
Presented by:
All Children Thrive – California  •  Kaiser Permanente  •  Public Health Advocates

Creating healing communities starts with understanding how we bring healing to ourselves and our organizations.

At the same time, moving from trauma to healing requires public policies and systems changes that recognize our common humanity, protect and prioritize healing relationships, and are rooted in an understanding of historical wounds and wisdom.
