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

The New England ATTC, in partnership with AdCare Educational Institute of New England is hosting this session at the Virtual New England Summer School on 6/7/21 from 2:00 to 5:15 with subject matter expert Brenda Westberry. When faced with racism, we need to address the systemic obstacles to equal opportunities and equal justice.  Racism persists and its effects can be devastating. If violence is a part of this image, it diminishes the quality of that outcome.  Trauma is at the forefront of racism and violence. In this session, the participant 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.
