I would like to learn if there are any Community members who have presented any programs about ACEs and Resilience to gang members (adolescent or adult)? And if so, what do the presentations look like? Thank you.

this is a great conversation, and something I am interested in as well, due to the fact there are many anti violence grants that I feel would be appropriate to apply towards ace prevention. I've been wondering if there are any links between gang activity and ace prevention
Hi, Elaine, and M. Danielle:
Yes, please know there are absolute links with the impact of ACEs and high-needs youth and families with respect to gangs and criminal-justice impacted communities.
Please visit our ACEs in the Criminal Justice System community https://www.acesconnection.com...-in-criminal-justice,
Please know I've been on the City of San Diego Commission on Gang Prevention & Intervention for over nine years and Chair the Youth Committee. Should you want to schedule a time to connect and chat further, please know I would be honored to do so.
Having presented on ACEs science myriad times over the years with high-needs youth and families impacted by gang violence, please know there is so much we can provide and support families in their healing journeys.
I truly appreciate your support and would love to have you speak to our community advisory board. I have a meeting tomorrow night. if you are available for future meetings I will move to have you put on the agenda
Dana, I would so appreciate the opportunity to connect with you and would like to be able to include my intern in our conversation. Thank you so much.
