Virtually or in-person our communities are beginning a new school year. Recently, I joined an EDC expert conversation
on how to help our children with feelings of anxiety, isolation, and trauma as they return to school. Our communities need continued support to provide safe, stable, and nurturing environments for children and adolescents and to address educational inequities that have amplified during the coronavirus pandemic.
True to our shared mission of advancing equity in injury and violence prevention, CSN will join our partners, Safe States Alliance, at their annual conference on September 9th. In the events section of this newsletter, you can learn more about CSN’s presentations on addressing health inequality and racism in times of change and hear examples from our Child Safety Learning Collaborative of addressing equity in injury and violence prevention.
Throughout this newsletter, you will continue to find resources from our CSN-A partners highlighted in purple.
