This panel discussion will focus on issues of inter-generational trauma, healing, neuroscience, and race. It will explore the ways in which activists and scholars have risen to the occasion, translating research into practice as they grapple with the unique historical role 2020 will play in furthering scholarly studies in this field, and in expanding various frameworks for trauma healing around the globe.
