Trauma, Oppression, and Resilience Workshop
In light of recent events in around our country and wanting to be proactive about how we as a community and individuals take care of ourselves while fighting injustice, we are offering a workshop “Trauma, oppression and resilience” with Jordana Peacock
We will learn about building a trauma-informed approach to our activism, our lives, and in our work for change. We will learn how trauma shows up, what to do about it, and how to create a network of healing in crisis and in our everyday lives.
Tuesday, August 29th 6:00 – 8:30 pm
Lexington Central Public Library
140 E Main St, Lexington, KY 40507
