“How does a community heal when it feels like it’s under attack?”

Welcome to the 14th Annual Community Empowerment Through Black Men Healing Conference being held virtually on September 22 & 23, 2022. This year's objective is to make an authentic attempt to answer the following question. "How does a community heal when it feels like it's under attack?" The community experience with COVID-19 and the death of George Floyd became a nationwide eye-opening experience and hope for a reckoning for past trauma. This reckoning appears to be short-lived with increased community violence and a call for increased policing, which leaves the community feeling unsafe and under attack. We will take a critical deep dive into strategies to address these issues internally and externally and explore practical trauma-informed, culturally sensitive outcome-driven approaches that lead to community empowerment and healing.


The conference is open to all interested in the topic.
