Written by on July 2, 2020

WITF’s series of virtual community conversations hosted by Charles Ellison addressing systemic racism and injustice in Central Pennsylvania and beyond continues Thursday, July 2 at 7:00pm.

Join us as we examine Black Trauma & Mental Health. Repeated incidents of micro-aggression, workplace discrimination, racial profiling and police brutality have taken a toll on Black Americans. What is racial trauma and what are the mental health implications? We’ll explore the link between racism, mental and physical health.
