Trauma & Social Justice Annual Conference
Held the 2nd week of September, the
Trauma and Social Justice Conference is an annual event sponsored by the Trauma Response Institute at George Fox University. 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.

*What's A Participant-Working Conference?
Come ready to learn and share! The Trauma & Social Justice Conference recognizes that all of us are both learners and experts in effecting change. 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.
