Trauma As Community Public Health Crisis: Healing the Harms of Police Violence


Event Type: , , , ,

Panelists:

Darrell Cannon, Chicago Torture Justice Center Outreach Specialist & Burge Torture Survivor

Christine Haley, Chicago Torture Justice Center Executive Director

Alice Kim, Chicago Torture Justice Center Steering Committee

Linda Rae Murray, UIC Professor of Public Health

Elena Quintana, Adler University Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice Executive Director

About the Talk : In May of 2015, the national spotlight shone on Chicago as it became the first municipality in the United States to offer reparations to victims of police torture. The reparations ordinance fought for by victims of torture, their families, and activists offers not only financial redress but also sought to address broader questions of how to heal the collective harms of police violence. This event will focus on how survivors and activists are addressing the challenges of police violence as a public health crisis for the Black community and raise questions about the role that health practitioners can play in healing collective harms.

About the Series : Building on important work that has documented extensive health disparities, this inter-disciplinary lecture series will explore why race is so consequential for health outcomes. Sessions will focus on a range of topics including how race matters for access to healthcare and healthcare delivery, how structural and interpersonal racism impact mental, emotional, and physical health, and how scholars, practitioners, and community groups can intervene to improve health outcomes for vulnerable communities.
