Conversations in Community

Conversations in Community is an opportunity for our community to explore the collective healing of ourselves and our students. Over the past five years, Sonoma County has suffered multiple and intersecting traumas of fires, floods, a global pandemic, and nationwide racial injustice. Together, let’s learn how to integrate individual and collective healing processes into the education spaces that serve our children and our community’s future.

Join us for the keynote launch event with Dr. Nadine Burke Harris and Dr. Bruce Perry on June 8th, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. During this dynamic and informative session, you'll learn the latest neuroscience research on trauma-informed practices and how healing and resiliency can help us address the needs of Sonoma County students. Lunch and childcare will be provided and live Spanish language and American Sign Language (ASL) translation will be available.

As an attendee, you'll also receive a book of your choice from our keynote speakers. Please plan to join us on Wednesday, August 2nd, for a book discussion and listening session at the Sonoma County Office of Education. This workshop will explore how to center and integrate processes for ongoing individual, interpersonal, and collective healing in our schools. Together, we can provide our students with the joyful and relevant educational spaces they need to realize their full potential.
