Dear TIS Network,
Racial justice and equity are central to Trauma-Informed Systems. As our partners at RYSE affirm, "Organizations and system that are not racially just, are not trauma-informed". With increased focus and collective will to address and redress racism towards racial justice, we continue in our work -internally, relationally, and externally- to support healing and uprooting the systemic racism, violence, and oppression that is woven into the fabric of our institutions and society.
We invite you to explore the resources in this newsletter and take part in combating racism, anti-Blackness, and showing up for racial justice and healing at all levels. We invite you to take action on all levels: individual, interpersonally, organizationally, and structurally. We encourage us all to practice self-care to sustain us for the long game! We are with you all in the struggle.
