Infusing our prevention work with a trauma-informed framework has always been essential to create safer space for the survivors we serve. Now that we are collectively navigating twin pandemics, trauma-informed practices are all the more necessary. This workshop from the 2021 Prevention Town Hall explores how to integrate intersectionality into our trauma-informed prevention practice. Participants engage in discussion to explore the various ways to be a trauma-informed prevention educator.
Building on the momentum from the 2020 Prevention Town Hall featuring the East North Central region of the United States, the 2021 event explored prevention strategies that center survivors who are most marginalized, uplift grassroots and community-based organizing, honor the leadership of survivors and advocates who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, and promote real transformative change that centers racial justice in our agencies.
