“This free event draws together experts and advocates across various fields who will help to advance a conversation about violence, trauma, and resilience, with a specific focus on gun violence, neighborhood violence, and what it takes to build resilient communities. Even a cursory reading of today’s headlines show that these issues are by no means resolved. Not only are certain communities and populations most at risk from violence, but our focus has been too much on individual trauma and its repair and not on structural and community solutions. This symposium kicks off a year of dialogue about trauma and resilience, culminating in Spring 2019 in a series of UA Presents events.
