Renowned Researcher and Educator Dr. Angela Joy DeGruy Comes to KC June 12

Providing healing and care for children and adults means addressing generational challenges. The trauma associated with violence can be passed from generation to generation as if those experiences were genetic. But breaking that
generational trauma is complex. There aren’t easy solutions. It involves an intricate web of understanding the issue, preventing, and treating the root causes.

We invite you to walk with us as we explore ways to identify root causes associate with generational trauma associated with violence as we seek to deliver real healing and justice to the Kansas City Community.
