As Chair of the Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color, I invite you to join Chair Assemblymember Reginald Jones-Sawyer and me for a screening and discussion of the moving documentary "Wounded Places" at the Elihu Harris State Building in Oakland on Monday, December 14th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
"Wounded Places" describes how structural racism has ravaged communities and exposed children and families to multiple adversities and traumatic experiences, including violence, fear, poverty, and domestic instability. One of the select committee's many goals this year includes addressing the negative outcomes resulting from the adverse childhood experiences that many of our children suffer daily.
The screening is from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. and will be followed by an hour-long discussion with the audience, producers, members of the select committee, and several local organizations highlighted in the documentary, including, but not limited to, Youth ALIVE! and Youth UpRising.
