“Today’s issues are deeply rooted in both historic legal precedent, including an inequitable criminal justice system and the right to vote, and systemic disparities in public education, health care, employment and housing. Community trauma cannot be simply turned off like a light switch—dimming can only occur when ALL of us work together to address each of these systemic issues as a nation.”
Candi Castleberry Singleton, founder and CEO, Dignity & Respect, Inc.
“A focus on community healing is extremely important. Our communities need to know what tools and resources are available to them as they face emotional trauma due to what’s happening in their neighborhoods and in the world.”
Kyshira Moffett, president, Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh Young Professionals
