Check-in: Trauma – Zoom Link

Event facilitated by: Meghan Wills

Trauma is an emotional response to a distressing event or series of connected events. Trauma can be intergenerational as well, “a cumulative emotional and psychological wounding over the lifespan and across generations, emanating from massive group trauma”. In this conversation, Meghan Wills will engage with the ACB community on trauma, especially intergenerational, due to anti-Black racism and as experienced by different ACB communities. Also, Meghan will discuss specific strengths ACB people and communities can leverage to mitigate trauma. Afterwards there will be ample opportunity to ask questions.
