Transforming Culture through Healing Resources

We all play a role in creating violence-free, resilient communities.  Join us for a special community awareness program to learn what is needed for our community to thrive, despite ongoing challenges, and how we can help address the needs.  People from the faith community, medicine, behavioral health, justice and law enforcement communities are invited to join together in learning from two panels of experts and our multi-disciplinary conversation.
