Workshop | Braided Stories: Building Equitable Communities for Alaska's Children

May 4 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm AKDT

Braided Stories Flyer

SPACE IS LIMITED | Registration Required

R.O.C.K. Mat-Su partners created Braided Stories for adult audiences because understanding and addressing historical and intergenerational trauma is critical to achieving the vision of reducing child abuse and increasing family resilience in the Mat-Su.
The partnership sculpted the curriculum to specifically explore the histories, disparities, and strength of racial and ethnic groups in the Mat-Su. Evoking the braided rivers of the Mat-Su, participants intertwine their own stories with local history and voices in order to deepen understanding of the people, place, and lifestyles of the Mat-Su.
Through facilitated dialogue and personal reflection, the workshop creates a safe space to examine awareness of one’s personal identity, to explore the dynamics of power, and to consider possibilities for a healthier future for Mat-Su’s children.
