Racial Truth & Reconciliation Week: Art & Activism Call for Submissions 8/2 – 8/8/20

Posted:  -  By: Chlo'e Edwards

On January 21, 2020, advocates from around the state joined us at the 2020 Campaign for a Trauma-Informed Virginia Advocacy Day! The goal of the Campaign is to advocate for state-level policy investments around trauma-informed care across child-serving systems. Over 40 partners endorsed the Campaign’s priorities this 2020 General Assembly Session. The advocacy day followed Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Artists helped advocates celebrate a resilient Virginia in showcasing work that met the themes peace and resiliency. Today, as we address and promote justice for oppressed communities, we encourage artists and advocates to submit pieces that address cultural, historical, and racial trauma in addition to pieces that highlight cultural resilience, truth, reconciliation, and justice. 

Submit Your Piece by July 20th!
