This toolkit from the Center for Community Resilience at George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health aims to help us collectively see the historical underpinnings of structural racism and the traumas and disparities that result and conduct constructive conversations that lead to policy change. It emphasizes the importance of centering equity at the heart of what it means to be resilient.

The toolkit includes modules on connecting policy to community outcomes, preparing for the equity talk, and community engagement strategies, as well as information on adverse childhood events (ACEs) in the context of adverse community environments.
