WEBINAR:Recognizing Healing-Centered Community Practices as a Complement to Trauma-Informed Interventions & Services

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

11:00 AM  12:15 PM

 

There has been increasing attention towards the need for interventions to address and mitigate the role of trauma in individual and community wellbeing. The list of trauma-informed services and interventions seems to grow by the day. While these service developments are a welcome change from previous methods to improve community health and wellbeing, discussions with basebuilding community partners have uplifted community-centered healing practices that have helped our communities to endure and survive over time, and need to be (re)introduced.

A Commitment to Equity: CA4Health Equity Principles

CA4Health has been exploring how our program office and members can collectively embody our commitment to health equity. Following PolicyLink’s Equity Summit in April, members of our CA4Health delegation collaborated to craft a set of intentions related to equity that will keep the energy and lessons alive for our network. Our first outcome from these discussions is CA4Health's Guiding Principles for Health Equity and Justice. These principles express our commitment to equity and will inform how we assess what policies and/or actions CA4Health will support.

Updates from ENACT Day 2020

The ENACT Day team has shared updates and opportunities for
action based on the Beyond Recovery policy platform that was released on
ENACT Day. With the legislative cycle contracted due to the COVID-19
pandemic, a number of bills have been introduced since ENACT Day that
advance our priority goals, and we urge you to take action on some or all of
them today. Keep reading for ways to take action to support health in all of our
