PACEs Connection presents the "Historical Trauma in America" series

 

PACEs Connection's Race & Equity Workgroup will be examining historical trauma in the United States of America and its impact on American society in a series of virtual discussions.  This series will highlight each unique region within the United States and outline how unresolved historical trauma has impacted every aspect of American life and directly shapes the socio-political landscape of today as well as the overall well-being of Americans.  Discussions will make connections between America's history and the current mental health crisis, social determinants of health and the obvious disparities and inequities present in our communities today.  Please join us!

Please see the series description and schedule below:

Our founding was traumatic for all but whites. The genocide that followed and the slavery we brought to this land was built into the founding documents. Let us also not forget that to this day, there is not one single female pronoun in  the Constitution, or its amendments, and so we can include sexism as an expression of trauma which continues to this day.

Will you be resending these links periodically throughout the year as the next date approaches, or should we sign up for all of them now?
