From the NCTSN: "Systems and organizations must shift beyond performative action toward becoming antiracist and trauma-informed. This resource offers actionable principles and strategies that organizations can implement to make this move toward fundamental transformation. Our nation is at a critical precipice for reimagining how to improve access to and quality of the services for children, families, and communities throughout the United States (US) who have been traumatized by the current and historical impacts of anti-Black racism, as well as to dismantle the white supremacy culture that continues to uphold this racism. The goal of this resource is to light a fire in the bellies of systems, their leaders, and their agents to adopt conscious efforts and actions that promote equity, healing, and justice. This cannot be achieved by inspiring systems to simply think differently about individuals negotiating racism in their daily lives - they must act differently."
