Listening for A Change

Friday, 11/14
1:45 pm to 3:15 pm

The RYSE Youth Center's Listening Campaign is an inquiry of the articulations and experiences of trauma, violence, coping, and healing for young people of color in Richmond, CA. It examines the legacy of structural racism vis-a-vis localized conditions of chronic, complex trauma, correlated health and social inequities, collective embodiment of trauma and violence, as well as collective empowerment towards healing, hope, and justice. The session will showcase RYSE’s multi-media research and base-building methods of the Campaign reflecting, elevating, and integrating youth development best practices, racial justice organizing, and systems change efforts.
