Race and Violence in Our Communities - Session at the New England School of Addiction and Prevention Studies Summer School

The New England ATTC, in partnership with AdCare Educational Institute of New England is hosting this session at the New England Summer School on 6/11/24 from 10:00am - 5:15pm with subject matter expert Brenda Westberry. The presence of violence in a community increases not only the potential number of victims of violence but also increases the likely number of perpetrators of violence, fostering an ongoing cycle of violence in communities afflicted by this public health disease. In this course, participants will examine a range of factors that increases an individualā€™s risk of being a victim or perpetrator of drug related interpersonal violence; identify and explore historic forms of systemic racism in communities; evaluate the interconnectedness between race, violence, poverty and crime; and explore the types of violence and trauma related issues that have impacted minorities and communities of color.
