I live in New York City, and am a child abuse/ACES survivor. Is there any ACES Connection activity in this area? If there was, I would love to get involved. I just looked at the geographic communities map and didn't see any.
Hi Larry, the short answer is YES there is a group in New York! It is called (hyperlink in blue text) New York state ACEs Action and the community manager is Shawn Trifoso please consider joining (by click the red button)!
Also, please know that ACEs Connections encourages folks to review the List of ACEs Connection Communities - and join any groups that they feel drawn to. There are about 300 communities - some focused on a geographic area, others focused on a topic (e.g. ACEs in Education, Parenting with ACEs, etc).
On our homepage - there is a box called Mapping the Movement, if you click on the box it opens a map of all the communities in the US and internationally.
If you do not see a community in your area, consider reaching out to your regional community facilitator - click on Who We Are to find your best contact.
In a dreamy world - ACEs Connection members would find a local community and an interest based group to join!
I hope this is useful!
