Our Programs Manager caught part of a powerful speech last evening at Alliance for Gun Responsibility Foundations Call to Action Event. His truth reaffirmed our need to hold space for our community to heal from Internalized Anti-Blackness. When we hurt one of ours we hurt our community. When we heal ourselves and Denormalizing self inflicted violence we heal our world.

Thank you to all who came out and joined us on the livestream for Denormalizing Violence: Culture Panel Discussion! The stories, analysis, histories and healing were so deep and relevant to the culture of Seattle today. Our panel and community discussed the oppressive systems of cultural violence (racism, ableism, sexism, slavery, appropriation, mysogynoir etc.) that marginalize our communities and spoke to the investment in our youth and families that lead to generational healing. Catch a snippet of the discussion, drop a comment because we’d love to hear what you think and stay tuned for Denormalizing Violence: Institutions Panel Discussion coming late January! #AofH #FaceofHope #DenormalizingViolence #Com#Community #WomenLead #BlackLead #Healing #Speak #TraumaInformedCare #Community #Culture #Seattle #Dis#Discussion #Racism #Sexism #Transphobia #Mysogynior #Discussion #StartConversation #HealCommunity #ShiftCulture

As we plan Denormalizing Violence Panel Discussion on Cultural Violence our minds and hearts can’t help but go to Nia Wilson. Nia is one of many black girls who’s life was cruelly cut short due to cultural violence. Denormalizing Violence Panel Discussions are for Nia, Sandra and Charleena. For Philando, Eric, Micheal, Travon, Tamir and countless others. Lets start conversations to heal our community and shift culture for the better! #WeCan #AofH #FaceofHope #saytheirnames #DeNormalizingViolence #communitydiscussion #joinus #theydeservedbetter #letsgetit #youdeservebetter #youcan #drivechange #makechange #fosterchange #bechange #notonemore #culturalviolence #NiaWilson #SandraBland #CharleenaLyles #Philandrocastile #EricGarner #MichealBrown #TravonMartin #TamirRice
