    Promoting Community Safety

    Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 1:30–3 p.m.

    Presenter: Steve David, The Ohio State University College of Social Work

    Safety is ultimately about relationships. It is about the ways we treat ourselves, each other and the communities we encounter. Yet many perceive that this basic truth is not always honored and uplifted in our daily practices, policies and procedures. Join us for a discussion on strategies that can improve community safety by addressing trauma, decriminalization of communities and building community capacity.



    2019 Training Series: Social Justice & Public Health

    Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal rights and opportunities — this includes the right to good health. Yet today, there are inequities in health that are avoidable, unnecessary and unjust. These inequities are principally the result of policies and practices that create an unequal distribution of money, power and resources among communities based on race, class, gender, place and other factors. Join us for this FREE training series to discuss the role of social justice in achieving health equity. Registration is required.

     

    Register for trainings online at www.bit.ly/EmbracingEquity-2019.

    All trainings are held in Columbus Public Health’s Auditorium (240 Parsons Ave., Columbus).

    Social Work CE’s will be offered for each training.
