County-Wide Book Discussion Launch and Conversation on Mental Health and Historical Trauma

This event is the launch of the JCMP City Wide Book Discussion. We will begin with an opening conversation about mental health and historical trauma with Herb Wilkerson and Diedra Keener. After the conversation we will inform participants about how to start their group, inform them of the book list and answer any lingering questions. Participants will be asked to sign up to lead a discussion group of their peers. JCMP will collect their information so that we can stay in touch and provide support if needed. The County-Wide Book Discussion will run from June through September 1st.

Location: The Central Branch of the Birmingham Public Library
Date/Time: June 11, 2019 – 6:00-7:30 PM
Panelist: Herb Wilkerson & Diedra Keener

Small Group Trainings

This training will be hosted in partnership with our community partners, Pilgrim Church, Covenant Community Church, The Threshold Project, Faith in Action Alabama, and Greater Birmingham Ministries.

JCMP has four goals: Research. Educate. Place. Advocate. Our release of the 30 Residents Report was a culmination of our JCMP Fellow Research. Now, let’s figure out how we can educate our county, via this report, on this history and its legacies. We will host small-group organizing meetings. In these meetings, attendees will:

  • Train each other in how to be be trauma informed discussion leaders and discuss this history in respectful and intentional ways
  • Work towards a county-wide trip to EJI’s Museum and Memorial

We’ll be adding more times and places in the coming weeks. These events are free and will be capped at 20 participants to ensure intentional trainings and discussions can happen.
