Visionaries across the globe are carrying the torch to mend individuals, families, and the  broken sectors of community affected by violence against humanity.  State based violence exacerbates the symptoms of Adverse Childhood Experiences (A.C.E.S.) What we do today, dictates tomorrow.  True wins can only occur in community with those who live there.   

What is ACES?

A.C.E.S are experiences from physical , verbal, and/or sexual abuse, physical or emotional neglect, loss of a loved one, abuse to a parent, substance abuse, mental illness, and criminal behavior in the household)
Historically it's been taboo to talk about these experiences. 

What's worst is what happens when we do? 

We must do something!   ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
