Introduction to strategies for trauma awareness and resilience
The Red Wing Human Rights Commission is hosting a free, 2-hour virtual event with the goal of helping participants build awareness and resilience within themselves, and awareness of trauma in others, so everyone can speak and understand each other better. The commission says of the event, “You can create more peace within yourself, your home, workplace, school, neighborhood, family and community – and this is a great place to start.”
The virtual event will be from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 22. The event will be facilitated by the Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute.
