Rooted in Community: Moving from Trauma to Healing
Public Health Advocates hosted Rooted in Community: Moving from Trauma to Healing, our organizations first trauma-focused conference, on November 20-21 in Long Beach, Ca. This conference served to educate, inspire and equip over 257 health partners, educators and community activists to mobilize and bring healing to ourselves and the communities of color we serve.
One of the highlights of the conference was the youth panel “Resilient Youth: Harmed and Healing”. Our very own Faces of Resilience youth advocates, Timothy Vaughn and
Mackenzie Cook, did a phenomenal job speaking on the importance of trauma informed education and their personal experiences with trauma in the school system.
