Update from the Building Community Resilience Town Hall

ECIN participated in the national Building Community Resilience (BCR) Town Hall at THEARC on April 19. The BCR Collaborative brought together local community partners driving positive change for children and families who face adverse childhood experiences in the context of adverse community environments. ECIN colleagues – Lee Beers, Matt Biel, Binny Chokshi, Ambrose Lane, Jr., and Sarah Barclay Hoffman spoke at the event to share insights from research, practice, and advocacy.

The BCR Town Hall highlighted the fact that everyone and every sector has a role to play in promoting resilience in Washington, DC.
