Making Baltimore a trauma-informed city ensures that every service, public servant, and policy supports healing of the community as a whole. Learning how to relate to and engage with each other from a trauma-informed perspective in our everyday interactions helps us strengthen relationships and build community through our shared humanity.
Our Origin Story
On February 7 & 9, 2020, the united efforts of dozens of organizations and over 80 individuals culminated in a weekend full of community building, healing and solidarity in our commitment to building a racially, socially and economically just and thriving Baltimore for ALL.
On Friday, hundreds of students led discussions and panels on trauma and healing at Morgan State University. On Sunday, hundreds of neighbors from across the city met at Coppin State University in a Celebration of Solidarity with free hair services, a resource fair, conversation, music and entertainment, before marching in unity to Frederick Douglass High School for the historic signing of the Elijah Cummings Healing City Act.“Our world would be a much better world, a much better place, if we would only concentrate on the things we have in common.” – Congressman Elijah Cummings
Partnership in Action
We’re building a critical mass of individuals and organizations committed to creating a more compassionate, caring, and connected community focused on healing together through trauma-informed perspective and engagement.
This is a grassroots effort of individuals just like you, connecting across neighborhoods, embracing differences, breaking down barriers, healing, and building the shared community we want, together.
