POSTPONED - ACEs and Resilience Community of Practice event

Department of Health is advising staff to consider whether large, in-person meetings are essential and limit the number of people present where possible.   Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we are canceling the May 18 ACEs Community of Practice Spring event.

In the meantime, we continue our work through the webinar series. Teresa Posakony is hosting eight amazing webinars over the next few months. We can continue to connect and learn via the webinars without risking exposure to virus! If you haven’t received information about the webinars, Contact to be added to the distribution list.

Mark your calendar for the fifth Washington statewide ACEs and Resilience Community of Practice Convening, hosted by Essentials for Childhood.

Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone working to build resilient communities, address and prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Adverse Community Environments, and other forms of trauma, or to create communities where ALL children thrive in safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments.
  • Whether this is your first Community of Practice event or you have joined us in the past, we’d love to see you there.

Travel Assistance – we have a limited budget to cover travel costs for people who don’t have an organization that can support their travel and who are traveling over 100 miles. You will be able to request travel assistance when you register.

Spread the word: Please forward this announcement to other leaders and organizers in your community, including parent leaders.
