We are delighted to announce the official launch of the National Trauma Campaign!
Read below or visit the ACEs Connection article detailing the Campaign to learn more about the big plans we have to transform our nation in ways that heed lived experience and provide a platform to build resilience at the individual, family, community, state, and national levels.
The Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice (CTIPP) founded this grassroots effort with the encouragement and engagement of community leaders and supportive advocates – like you – who want strong federal efforts to prevent and address these important issues nationwide. The National Trauma Campaign is designed to support local and state leaders in opening a line of regular communication with congressional offices to:
- Provide evidence on the science and research on trauma and resilience;
- Share information about trauma initiatives already taking place within congressional districts and states; and
- Partner to create policies and passable legislation that promote healthy and resilient communities.
We invite you to actively and passionately pursue this goal alongside CTIPP. We are confident that the time you spend advocating will create a resilient, trauma-informed society where all individuals, families and communities have the opportunity and support needed to thrive.
While the Campaign building blocks are in place, it will take a chorus of voices like yours and other advocates throughout the country, over time, to ensure positive change.
