How We Can Promote Healing from Trauma through Restorative Justice Circles

Posted by World Trust Team on November 1, 2017

In a previous post, we discussed intergenerational trauma and how it can lead to harm in marginalized communities today. In that post, we highlighted the work of a 2012 report on addressing intergenerational trauma for Aboriginal youth living in Canada, which made mention of centering community healing practices, strengthening cultural identity, and building professional support networks as some ways to begin the process.

Launch!

Posted by World Trust Team on June 16, 2016


Last Summer, we offered
a series of free film clips  about racism and its impact on our society.  To this day we hear how deeply the clips supported meaningful and nuanced conversations. 

To continue to support your conversations, today we launch the Summer of #JusticeandHealingNOW! In the coming weeks we'll be offering free film clips on JUSTICE and HEALING, right to your inbox each week

The clips are from our upcoming film (coming in 2017) and explore:

  • How do you define the meaning of justice?

  • Why is addressing trauma such an important component of justice? 

  • How do our current structures create disproportionate outcomes for people, young people in particular of color as well as the poor and disenfranchised?

  • Why and how do our current structures need to be changed if we want to ensure that children are treated well?

The world is crying out for healing - healing of inequitable actions and of unfair, unjust systems.  And, equally important, the world is crying out for the deep internal healingthat allows us to more effectively come together to educate, organize and work towards a world that works for everyone.  In community we can heal, support and renew while sharing the analytical tools and facts that allow us to be effective.

At World Trust, for the last 20 plus years, we've found our films to be effective pathways to building community and capacities for working towards racial equity. Watching films and clips allows individuals to simultaneously self-reflect and learn while offering a common touchstone for conversations with others to discuss our deepest needs, hopes and strategies for creating a more just world.  


This summer we hope these film clips from our upcoming film will move, inspire, and invite you to engage in conversations with others - family members, friends, colleagues and community members. Feel free to share the clips as widely as you wish. We also will be #ConnectingGoodWork by featuring some like-minded organizations that work for an end to cycles of pain and suffering via our Facebook page. We can't wait to connect with you in the coming weeks! 
 

Towards Justice and Healing NOW, with love,
