Historical Trauma in the Black community
and the addiction crisis

Free Webinar featuring Samuel Simmons

Addiction and drug policy in America are inextricably linked to race.

In this webinar, we'll dive into the dynamics of racial injustice, trauma, and oppression that contribute to addiction rates.

We'll also look at the ongoing racial disparities in policing and incarceration that perpetuate inequality and fail to address the root causes of addiction and the potential negative consequences of drug use.

If you are working to lead your congregation or community through issues of racial justice, this webinar will be a valuable resource.
