Finding Our Why | Authentic Community Engagement

How do we show up for our communities in the midst of collective trauma? 

In a time when our country grieves more than 214 mass shootings so far this year… including a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas that killed 21 people, including 19 children, our communities need us. But how do we show up when we ourselves are hurting? When we struggle to pull ourselves out of bed and do the work, hoping that it reaches someone, maybe just anyone. 

The conversation you are about to listen to is an excerpt from a conversation with The New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence, the Department of Women and Families and community organizers in South Jersey, about their partnership to engage communities, and men of color, in meaningful and authentic ways to prevent violence. 

Parts of this conversation mention gun violence and could be triggering for some listeners. References to gun violence run from 32:49 – 36.27. There will be a content disclaimer before they begin.
