Your work educating and engaging people in PACEs science. We are now 57,000 strong!
Sharing information about why positive childhood experiences (PCEs) should be incorporated with ACEs science, which led to us change our name to PACEs Connection. It's thrilling to see organizations integrate research about PACEs science, just as they did with ACEs science.
Participating in our 150 webinars over the last 20 months, including our Historical Trauma in America series.

Culture. Trauma. podcast one of the top new podcasts on VoiceAmerica.
Growing the number of new PACEs Connection communities in 2021 and 2022 to a total of 459, and for the nine initiatives that have joined our Cooperative of Communities (for a total of 20, with 30 more in the process of coming on board.) It's so rewarding to see the acceleration of this movement across the country and around the globe!
Advancing the PACEs movement, including the remarkable number of state laws that incorporate PACEs science and/or trauma-informed practices, all 50 states doing their own ACE surveys a state campaign, a national best-selling book, and at least two state-wide programs for pediatricians to integrate PACEs science into their practices.
This growth and our opportunities could not be happening without you. In our partnership with you we’ll continue to accelerate the PACEs movement, to learn more about how you are preventing and healing trauma, and incorporating positive, community-led, culturally appropriate, anti-racist, equitable experiences into your lives and work.
