Free Workshops: Trauma Informed Organizational and Leadership Strategies

This year’s workshop looks at trauma-informed organizational responses to crisis and racism; working with youth, de-escalation and building anti-racist plans. These free workshops are held with the intention of building a loose cohort and provide mentorship opportunities for people in anti-racist organizational or consultation work. This knowledge is often limited to institutions and this is an effort to provide free, public community resource-sharing. You may schedule free 1-on-1 consultation and mentorship time also. The goal is to pass on all lived and embodied knowledge to future practitioners. The facilitator's bio can be read here: http://vovovovo.weebly.com/education.html

Please email Vo Vo at quocanhvovo@gmail.com with any questions!

Every training will have ASL interpretation and closed captioning, and workshops can include interpretation upon request by a registrant.

All trainings and workshops will be at this Zoom link:
