We want to invite you to the 9th annual Community Empowerment Black Men Healing Conference, called “Groundbreaking and Visionary”. This year the goal is to go beyond the ACE Study, focusing on deeper issues of racial trauma and successful culturally sensitive strategies for helping individuals and the African American community heal, build resiliency, and prevent future ACEs.
From the 1st annual conference held in 2009, the conference has provided an opportunity for meaningful community engagement and access to national and local educators, and community practitioners to discuss and introduce practical culturally sensitive trauma informed initiatives leading to the improved health and wellness of African American men and their families. We realize that a stronger, thriving African American community improves the health of the community and the society as a whole.
Open to men and women of all cultures working with the African American community or interested in the topic. Register early space is limited. For additional information about the conference is available at www.brothershealing.com.
