Trauma research foundation is excited to announce our 3rd Annual Social Justice Summit

Dear TRF Community, 

We invite you to join us for the 3rd Annual Social Justice Summit. As we start this new year and find our way to post pandemic life, the questions of how visibility, inclusion, safety, and accessibility to healing impact trauma healing are foremost in our minds. We invite you to spend a thoughtful, purposeful time with us in conversation– openly exploring how to be present and embodied while witnessing and holding our stories and histories, how we are impacted socially, politically, collectively, and individually by them, and how we can create opportunities to heal.

This year’s Social Justice Summit is focused on Big Conversations, which is not always easy to have or even show up for. Big conversations where we don’t have easy answers, and where our vulnerability and willingness to listen are part of how we create safety and the possibility for healing. In this summit, we will explore the following:
