It is designed to promote and support the work of humanitarian aid, mental health, education, ministerial, and health care professionals dedicated to naming and responding to socio-cultural factors that increase stress and trauma among marginalized and vulnerable populations. Our gathering is a time to share research, programs, successes, and struggles for mutual support and furthering of our work toward building more safe, equitable, and resilient communities.

We strive to further challenge and deepen our work, as well as resource one another through guided discussions, including the sharing of our successes and challenges as new skills or calls to respond are identified.
