Join us at the Ford Foundation for Social Justice on Monday, May 13, 2019 for a one-day forum where we will discuss building resilience after terrorism and traumatic loss.
Incidents of mass violence continue to rise domestically and globally, and the need for long-term healing is more apparent than ever. Join Tuesday’s Children as we convene experts working to counter violent extremism in unique ways, as well as individuals and organizations working to support communities and families affected by trauma and loss and the ripple effects that ring out beyond the immediate tragedy. Featured experts in the fields of trauma, grief, bereavement, disaster response and recovery and community resilience will discuss best practices and lessons learned from various traumatic events.
