Racial Justice and Collective Trauma
“If it’s not racially just, it’s not trauma-informed.”
Trauma Transformed is honored to work with a beloved community of Bay Area people led by RYSE working at the nexus of racial justice and trauma. This community focuses on the intersections of trauma-informed work and systems of racial oppression, historical and insidious trauma related to microaggressions, institutional racism and other structures of inequities and harms that contribute to our organizational and individual experiences of trauma.
A regional convening took place during August 2016 to connect Bay Area racial justice and trauma healers around this critical work. Future meetings are being planned. Please consider the following memo resulting from the first Racing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) convening and a re-imagined ACEs pyramid that, in the spirit of trauma-informed care, names what has largely remained unsayable and carves out a path toward healing.
To connect with this work, please contact James Thompson.
