The 7th Annual Community Empowerment through Black Men Healing Conference to be held on June 25-26, 2015 at Metropolitan State University, St. Paul, MN. The focus for this year is “HISTORICAL TRAUMA: Addressing Gender Issues in the African American Community”
From the 1st annual conference held in 2009, the mission of the conference is to offer an alternative way of thinking about community building by addressing the blind spots linked to intergenerational and historical trauma that act as barriers to healing, collaboration, sustainable change and community empowerment. The conference provides an opportunity for meaningful community engagement and access to national and local educators, and community practitioners to discuss and introduce practical culturally sensitive trauma informed, outcome driven methods and services. The overall goal is to improve the health and wellness of African American men and their families, resulting in the larger community becoming healthier and safer. We realize that a stronger, thriving African American community improves the health of the community and the society as a whole.
The conference is open health care professionals, public officials, community practitioners, local educators, correction professionals, community members and other experts working in or with the African American Community.
