Join us for our second episode in a new series called "PACEs Connection Reacts" where we will be viewing the world through a PACEs science and trauma-informed lens.
For this PACEs Connection Reacts, join PACEs Connection's Race & Equity Workgroup as we react to the trial of Derek Chauvin, an American former police officer who was convicted of the murder of George Floyd. The murder of George Floyd, along with a string of other murders of Black Americans in 2020, spurred international protests of police brutality.
We will be debriefing and sharing our reactions and reflections concerning the verdict and inviting audience members to do the same.
Please join us to engage in an interactive discussion focused on the state of American policing, the relationship between police brutality, community violence and racial trauma, and the impact of the guilty verdict on our nation.
