Morning PACEs Connection community!
Thank you for the great work you are doing in your lives and communities to help prevent and heal trauma; put the focus on our collective need for healing and creating community-led and culturally-appropriate positive childhood experiences (PCEs)!
I’m looking for examples of ways an individual (yourself?) or your community have been changed by the work being done to build community. I’d like to collect these examples and use them for a presentation on “PACEs initiatives at work.”
Do you feel more welcomed at meetings? Do you see greater acceptance of people of different races, ethnic groups, neighborhoods, whatever? Have you all learned skills or practiced meeting norms that make meetings seem friendlier? Are you working on projects that go across sectors, ages, geographic areas that are bringing people together? Are you in partnership with a civic group, community foundation, or family foundation that is funding your PACEs initiative?
Perhaps you have heartwarming story you can share about something good happening in your community?
If you want to post here, great! If not, please email me at email@example.com
Please share this with your initiative’s leader, or ask about it at your group’s next meeting if you cannot think of something to share.
Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you.
Carey Sipp, PACEs Connection
Director if Strategic Partnerships
