Healing Racial Trauma: Where Do We Begin?

Racial Trauma is a struggle many are facing throughout our society. In January 2022, Child Guidance Resource Centers’ Neighborhood Safety Solutions Initiative, hosted a panel discussion on this topic, and it was clear that more discussion is needed. So, we decided to create another platform to move this discussion further.

On Thursday, April 21st, from 6:00–7:15 PM, we will explore “Healing Racial Trauma: Where Do We Begin?” Our prestigious panelists, includes, State Representative

Gina H. Curry, Judge Cheryl McCabe-Stroman, who has worked with Truancy and Criminal Courts, Rev. Carolyn C. Cavaness, Pastor of Bethel AME Church of Ardmore, Kimberly Arnold, Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at Penn, and DaVeda J. Graham, mother of 5, who oversees

Nurses United for Change and Equity, a nonprofit focusing on improving health disparities affecting underserved populations. Five strong women from various fields will share their viewpoints on this very important topic via zoom at 989-646-5252. Lawana Scales, who Co-Chairs Child Guidance Resource Centers’ DEI Council, will facilitate the discussion. All are welcome to join in and hear from our panelists with no advanced registration required. If you have questions, please email us at DEI@cgrc.org.
