Greater Bridgeport Area Prevention Program

2021 - $25,000

This funding will support the Greater Bridgeport Area Prevention Program in establishing the Sankofa Resiliency Training Institute. The institute will build on the organization’s existing Black Men and Trauma program, and will offer training on topics including historical trauma and its link to poor health outcomes; racial trauma and Black men; and peer-to-peer leadership. The training institute is designed to build leaders who can bring Black men’s often-underrepresented perspectives to discussions of racial trauma and healing in settings including town halls, community-based organizations, and legislative discussions.
