Day 4 - Building the Movement through Transformative Justice and Faith-Based Communities
February 18, 2022 - 1pm to 5pm ET/10am to 2pm PT
Panel 1: Transformative Justice
Grant-funded workshop provided by Mazzoni Center and WOAR. This workshop will give a foundational look at transformative justice with the goal of better understanding how to support people who have experienced violence through community-based approaches. The audience will learn about the core tenets of transformative justice, examine different frameworks that folks use to relate to justice or respond to violence, and consider how to best support survivors. We’ll then explore the concept of accountability and give the audience an idea of how to start engaging with transformative justice.
Panel 2: Faith-Based Communities
Building resilient faith-based organizations as trauma informed community to facilitate sensitive care, training, resource sharing, advocacy and social movement, not compromising own faith tradition but multiplying collaboration in the community for the greater good.
- Pastor Sanghoon Yoo will moderate this panel. He is the founder of The Faithful City (TFC), has led ministries and social services at Arizona State University (ASU) and the Phoenix metropolitan area over two decades. Pastor Yoo launched “Arizona Trauma Informed Faith Community (AZTIFC),” collaborating with Arizona ACE Consortium and many other organizations to mobilize a statewide movement for building resilient communities with trauma informed care. He offers trainings and consultation on ACEs and the trauma informed community building. The Pastor worked with Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Families (GOYFF) to hold a statewide ACEs summit last December, declaring Arizona as trauma informed state.
- Pastor David Lockridge is the founder and director of ACE Overcomers ,a nonprofit to help teens and adults overcome the effects of a difficult childhood.
- Pastor Darrell Armstrong was appointed as Chief Administrative Officer to the United Nations by the Baptist World Alliance. He is committed to strengthening families, reducing child abuse and neglect, and eradicating poverty on a global level.
- Rev. Paul Abernathy is the CEO of the Neighborhood Resilience Project which is committed to a grassroots, community-based approach to Trauma Informed Community Development.
- Dr. Farha Abbasi (Michigan State University) works to create awareness about cultural competency to redefine it as not just tolerance, but acceptance, and, as a psychiatrist, publicly addresses the barriers that stigmatize and silence mental health issues within the Islamic community.
