> Equal Justice USA (EJUSA) is a national organization working to transform the justice system by promoting responses to violence that break cycles of trauma. We work at the intersection of criminal justice, public health, and racial justice to elevate healing and safety over retribution, advance racial equity, and meet the needs of survivors. Our programs work to end the death penalty, limit and transform policing, expand community-based healing and violence prevention programs in impacted communities, and change the national narrative on violence and accountability.
> We are looking for highly skilled, healing-centered facilitators to lead our flagship trainings, From Trauma to Trust: Police/Community Collaborative Training, in various cities across the United States. Trauma to Trust is an innovative, 16-hour experience that brings together community residents (survivors, formerly incarcerated, community activists, etc.) and police officers to build mutual understanding of the links between unaddressed trauma (acute, chronic and complex) and justice system involvement, the impact of trauma on communities of color, and the impact of PTSD on officer use of force. Community members and police officers learn and speak openly about their own trauma, the trauma they see around them, and the historical link between the justice system, the history of policing, and racism. This dialogue allows everyone to see the impact of trauma on all sides, talk through persistent obstacles to trust, and collectively develop solutions for trauma-informed practices and policies that decrease harm and violence. Following the trainings, EJUSA organizers work with participants to engage in advocacy for systems change.
> For more information on the trainings, see this 6-minute video produced by The Grio <http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001BwpmMY-FyDgF6TaTc13tSQmoygHknnigcr9ONcOExmSkyceXyNCL2mq1ZywDJoBo2aLUA8zEAa84HqxRe1Y3Sv7CYuUXDUWYqXykclfQBWGHw06piubIqHnO59H7IUQyycYCopliqPhQR73-pO6L6tQUqp0aCmtjoqMm18KyWCPjpILhA60F-Alg08guTGTzgE9228qlcLPTuQMnAQKP9gi9H7oS4s-K&c=fPM0AlC4aNefAgNqfdU9RpUX7cjC_FxlMesPXiEZcqbj6IP5IfuoUA==&ch=Mvrma0gU5sQ0mRVeVWABwWrH8nukDC8qgme5R1B96CusWLpgHCVBlA==>.
> Position Overview
> Trauma to Trust Facilitators work in teams of two on a contract basis to lead our 16-hour trainings with community residents and police officers. Trainers use trauma-informed, restorative facilitation practices grounded in racial equity to lead dialogue, manage conflict and tension, build empathy, and increase knowledge of individual, community-level, and historical trauma, particularly in communities of color. The trainings are held over two days (8 hours per day), with a week break in between each session. Facilitators also provide feedback from their sessions to EJUSA to inform ongoing curriculum and program development, evaluation, and data collection.
> Facilitators will be invited to participate in a rigorous Train-the-Trainer process (details below). Following the Train-the-Trainer, selected Facilitators will work with EJUSA to set a schedule for training dates and locations.
