“Building a National Movement to Prevent Trauma and Foster Resilience” comprises a series of nine virtual workshops that were held every two weeks from January 7, 2022, through April 29, 2022. The half-day workshops were designed to provide information and tools for community coalitions to integrate trauma-informed, resilience-focused and healing-centered approaches into their local systems. These include child welfare, education, health care, justice and faith-based systems. Themes across all sectors include diversity, equity and inclusion; racial justice; community voice; a cross-sector approach; opportunities for youth; individual, families, and communities. The goal is to reduce individual, organizational and community exposure to trauma, particularly in underserved and marginalized populations.
