Senate Resolution 346 - Recognizing the Importance and Effectiveness of Trauma-Informed Care Passes!

 

On Tuesday, May 22, 2018, the U.S. Senate passed SR346. The Resolution was co-sponsored by Senator Johnson and Senator Heitkamp. The Campaign for Trauma Informed Policy and Practice, Fostering Futures, and most notably, First Lady Tonette Walker were instrumental in making a significant difference in advancing the culture change that we know makes a difference for survivors of trauma.

This Resolution is the companion piece to the Resolution the U.S. House of Representatives passed in February - HR443.

This is such an important step in gaining recognition of the need for ACEs science and trauma informed policies and practices!  Thank you for your work on moving this forward, Helga and thank you for sharing with us on ACEs Connection!  

I wanted to give a shout out to CA for passing through the house a resolution that May 22nd be determined Trauma-informed Awareness day. Hoping this will be approved by the CA Senate as well soon!

All small steps to creating a more resilient country and world!
