Since 2009, the mission of these conferences have offered an alternative way of thinking about community building by addressing intergenerational pain and trauma that act as barriers to healing and community empowerment to create an environment for wellness, “compassionate accountability”
In this era of limited resources and increasing disparities including in the areas of education, incarceration, unemployment and homelessness, these conferences provides an opportunity to bring together the mental health and health communities, as well as other resources for meaningful community engagement to identify and address those gaps. Also, it provides a chance for the African American community an opportunity to learn about and discuss an alternative way of thinking about community building “from inside out” not just “the outside in”.
