Confronting Racism: Helping Youth Heal from Racism-Based Trauma through Empowerment and Activism

Racism can cause significant and chronic traumatic stress in BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) children and youth. Racism-based trauma has been linked to psychological distress, physical health problems, depression, anxiety, and children’s ability to succeed academically and socially. Join Bright Promises Foundation for a panel discussion with leading experts in the field of race-based trauma, gain understanding about how to recognize youth trauma caused by racism, and learn how you can help empower youth and support their healing.
