Being Anti-racist is the first step in taking steps to end racial trauma as an adverse childhood and adverse community experience. In the Building Community Resilience Networks and in the work of the Center for Community Resilience we are dedicated to confronting the root cause of racial trauma in our country and across the globe-- the belief in White supremacy that is empowered by structural racism to produce the outcome of White supremacy. This is the vicious cycle of American life.
To undo structural racism we must confront and acknowledge the harm that is done to our communities and commit our work to healing through policy change. We are calling on all of our trauma-informed partners to join us in a national process of Truth and Reconciliation that will offer a pathway to reconstruction of our systems that support an equitable and resilient nation.
