On May 13th, we hosted Lessons in Recovery & Resilience: Building Resilience After Terrorism & Traumatic Loss, a one-day forum at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice. There were over 100 attendees including Tuesday’s Children family members across all our service populations, mental health professionals, community providers, academic faculty and students, nonprofit professionals and representatives of the philanthropic community. Additional participants tuned in via live stream and sessions were recorded.
The forum featured 15 speakers and panelists, including survivors impacted by terrorism and mass shootings, providers and activists working with those communities, and representatives of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office of Targeted Violence & Terrorism Prevention, the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Overseas Victims of Terrorism, the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism, Harvard University Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Twitter, Tech against Terrorism, CNN, NYPD Intelligence & Counterterrorism, the Bobby Resciniti Healing Hearts Foundation and Survivors Empowered. We look forward to collaborative efforts that will come out of this event to better support for survivors and communities.
