Racism and Trauma - How Does Racism Get Under Our Skin
The TCC is kicking off the year with an encore presentation of an event we held last year, Racism and Trauma:  How Does Racism Get Under Our Skin.  There was a lot of interest in this event, so we’ll be holding it in the evening so that more people can attend.
When the original ACES study was done, racism wasn’t one of the adverse experiences identified as the population studied was only 5% black. However, when the Philadelphia ACES study was done, they found that over one-third (34.5%) of adults reported experiencing discrimination based on their race or ethnicity. How does racism impact health outcomes?
At this January, TCC event we’ll use the film: UNNATURAL CAUSES: When the Bough Breaks, as a launching pad for a discussion of Racism and Trauma.  The film explores birth outcomes, factoring in economics and education.  We hope you’ll join us for the discussion.
All who share our vision and mission are welcome to attend this FREE EVENT.
