This award-winning 1-hour documentary details a scientific study that stunned the medical community. Researchers discovered that Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) increase the risk of developing obesity, heart disease, depression, and other medical impairments as an adult. But the cycle can be broken! Learn how communities have addressed childhood trauma, helped improve lives, and reduced behavioral referrals, bullying, crime, and youth suicide through resiliency.
After the movie, we invite you to participate in a Q&A discussion with local organizations and service providers working to address trauma within the Flint community.
You’re invited to join SBEV, the Crim Foundation, and the Community Foundation of Greater Flint in a Visioning Session for a Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Conversation. We’d like to hear from Flint residents and community members like you about problems plaguing the community, what progress may already be underway, and identify potential allies who can engage in the TRHT process.
Residents will gather along with a W.K. Kellogg consultant and participate in a guided community visioning session which will include small group discussions. We are sure that through this process and your involvement, we will glean valuable insights, information and perceptions about the community to help move the community forward.
TRHT is a national initiative of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to engage communities, organizations, and individuals from across the United States in racial healing and addressing present-day inequities linked to historic and contemporary beliefs in a hierarchy of human value.
