Twitter Town Hall: A Discussion on the Trauma of Inequality (#NCtalkstrauma)

New Connections will be facilitating a Twitter Town Hall on Thursday, May 24, 2018 from 2-3 p.m. (ET), entitled “A Discussion on the Trauma of Inequality.” The town hall will address trauma caused by inequality at the intersections of race, education, economics, and health—both on personal and academic levels. It will focus on two significant issues around inequality and trauma: 1) the vicarious trauma felt by teachers, professors, and professionals who are supporting students, patients, colleagues, etc. struggling with trauma, and 2) the traumas and inequality experienced by minority and first-generation scholars in large institutions. We are delighted to be working with John Kirby, director of the Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, Dr. Bethany M. (bee) Coston, professor of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, and Dr. Keisha Bentley-Edwards, director of the Health Equity Working Group at Duke University’s Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity. As researchers and practitioners working in the sectors of psychology, racism, gender violence, and trauma, these facilitators offer unique personal and professional perspectives on trauma and inequality. Please join us on Twitter, @newconx, on May 24 from 2-3 p.m. (ET), as we discuss the intersections of trauma and inequality. Use our hashtag, #NCtalkstrauma, to join the conversation.
