Thanks for posting this Lena! With reductions in many services, I expect competition for these funds will be pretty intense!

Re: Prop. 64 Stakeholder Group: Prioritize Trauma-Informed Approach to Youth Substance Use Education, Prevention and Treatment

Mendocino County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are partnering with First 5 and others to educate their Board of Supervisors- specifically asking for “20 by 2020”. Meaning 20% of the MJ revenue will be set aside to support children by the year 2020. Their talking points and community stories are well organized and powerful. Karen

@Allen K. Nishikawa Oh, indeed! The language in the initiative is pretty vague in terms of what types of programs and interventions are eligible for the YEPT fund, but it is clear that the funds are not to be used to supplant existing funding sources. That's not to say that legislators won't attempt and end-run.

@Karen Clemmer (ACEs Connection Staff) Thank you for this tip! It's definitely worth looking into Mendocino's efforts. Is 20% set-aside to come from local cannabis tax revenue, or from the Prop. 64 youth education, prevention and treatment fund?

@Lena Hoffman - Thank you for clarifying- you are correct MJ tax revenue as I understand it.

Prop. 64 Stakeholder Group: Prioritize Trauma-Informed Approach to Youth Substance Use Education, Prevention and Treatment

Lena Hoffman ·
In November 2016, California voters legalized adult use and sales of cannabis, and authorized state excise taxes that are estimated to generate up to $1 billion in revenue for regulation, research, public safety, prevention and treatment. A group of stakeholders representing youth-serving organizations and agencies across the state has issued recommendations for use of the tax revenue allocated to youth substance use education, prevention and treatment that emphasize a trauma-informed approach.

Childhood trauma a crucial public health issue [CapitolWeekly.net]

Clare Reidy ·
Preventing childhood trauma should be one of the top goals of California policymakers, a coalition of child advocates say. About 150 of the advocates came to Sacramento last week to educate legislators about the devastating effects of adverse childhood experiences. The goal was to help legislators create policies that will better protect kids. Adverse childhood experiences, known as ACEs, are experiences that are so harmful to children’s developing brains that they affect their lives decades...

Students with no schools. Teachers with no homes. Will Sonoma schools ‘get back to normal’? [sacbee.com]

Alicia Doktor ·
SANTA ROSA - Teacher Linda Severs lost her school but not her house. Parent Matt Todhunter lost his home but not the school his children attended. And Debra Sanders, who has spent the last six years providing school services for homeless families, suddenly found her own family in that same classification. Northern California’s Oct. 8 wildfires were among the most destructive in U.S. history, and in Sonoma County, they uprooted an entire school system. As the fires raged, nearly all of the...

Dr. Diane Suffridge, a clinical psychologist and director of the University Counseling Services at Dominican University in San Rafael, Calif., has been interested in trauma for many years.

The Economics of Child Abuse: A Study of California

Jenny Pearlman ·
While the impact of maltreatment on a child and their family is devastating, child maltreatment also has serious effects far beyond those for the victim. Maltreatment results in ongoing costs to taxpayers, institutions, businesses, and society at large. Local communities bear the brunt of these costs in the form of medical, educational, and judicial costs, though more tragic signs are seen in homelessness, addiction, and teen pregnancy. To create a concrete understanding of the widespread...
