CA communities and organizations from across the state shared information about their trauma informed and resilience building initiatives at the Child Adversity Policymaker Awareness Day on July 11, 2017 in Sacramento. The event, organized by 4CA (California Campaign to Counter Childhood Adversity), educated state legislators about the impacts of child adversity across the lifecourse and strategies for preventing ACEs, healing trauma and creating resilient communities.
A series of twelve community profiles were distributed as handouts during visits to legislators and their staff. Participants in the meetings reported that “eyes lit up” when the information about local initiatives was shared—it made a real impact to provide specific local data and highlight how trauma-informed and resilience building strategies were being implemented in the legislators’ own district.
Attached find Yolo County's Community Profile. We may want to update it for the upcoming "Building a Resilient Yolo Conference?" I'd be happy to help if anyone wants to join me!
