A foster child forever changed (sbsun.com)

Her name was Syrena. She was just 5 years old when she was removed from her home as a result of her parents’ drug use and years of neglect. After just a few months of visits with her mother, Syrena’s contact with her parents came to an end. Five years old and alone in the foster care system. Unfortunately, even the best system is a terrible replacement for a loving and consistent family. At 13, she heard from a fellow foster youth about CASA. Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASAs, are...

Ella Baker Truth and Reinvestment Justice Teams underway in 8 CA Counties

Alicia St. Andrews ·
There are various forms of emergency preparedness for natural disasters. From an early age, one learns how to put out a fire, board up their home if a hurricane or tornado is coming, or drop under a desk if an earthquake hits—but low-income communities of color have little to no response to more frequent incidences of state violence in the streets and inside of jails. The Justice Teams for Truth and Reinvestment will be the local rapid response networks inside of eight different counties...

Legislation Signals Growing Support for Significance of Trauma Indicators [CaliforniaHealthline.org]

Alison Lobb ·
As a college student, Rob Bonta had a summer job working as a counselor for troubled kids. Now, two decades later he is bringing legislation to address some of the needs he saw then. “I worked with some of these kids as a counselor out of college, and I’d walk them home and hear some of these stories,” Assembly member Bonta (D-Oakland) said. “Shootings they heard. Or shootings they witnessed the night before.” It was the summer of his junior year at Yale, when...

Movement-Making in Buncombe County (NC): Opportunity-Based Narrative and Creation Spaces

Lisa Eby ·
Mobilizing action can be intimidating. Creating a movement even more so. John Hagel provides the following definition of a movement: “an organized effort mobilizing a large number of independent participants in a grassroots effort to pursue a broad agenda for change.” He indicates that there are two key ingredients in movement making: 1) compelling narratives and 2) fostering creation spaces. In Buncombe County, we are experimenting with both of these notions. Opportunity-based Narrative A...

It was 2012, and she was using a $2-million grant from the First Five Riverside Commission to provide educational services and conduct research among 10,000 children and families in Riverside County, searching for why asthma was so prevalent in that community and how the health issue could be addressed.

Tell Us a Story: The Power of Narrative to Build a Social Movement

Rosa Ana Lozada grew up on a two-block-long street in a San Francisco neighborhood pocked with trauma: domestic violence, child abuse, the frequent wail of police sirens. “It was unsafe to walk the two blocks to the bus stop,” she recalled. “In my community, we learned that police officers were not our friends because they were only seen when bad things happened.” For Lozada, now CEO of Harmonium, Inc., and a member of the San Diego Trauma Informed Guide Team, home and family were the...

Virtual Trauma-Informed Schools: Mission Academy

Heartache is a universal experience, yet we often feel alone. Things happen; choices are made, and before we know it, we wake up longing for change. No one grows up dreaming that they will not “fit in” to the “traditional” path, but when they find themselves on the detour route, it feels like a moving treadmill, going nowhere fast down an isolated road. “Traditional” opportunities may not have worked out, but there are alternative routes to success, now more than ever!
