Learning Courage hosted a virtual event on January 12, 2021. The theme of this event was Resilience. This theme resonated for all of us at that time because we were approaching a year in the grips of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Everyone was fatigued from all the restrictions and losses that came with the pandemic. And yet resilience represented something we all felt connected to. We needed more of it and yet we all had to demonstrate it. And resilience is a significant part of our work at Learning Courage. Our goal is to support and promote resilience in schools by providing tools that reduce sexual assault and minimize trauma for those who have been harmed.
We were honored to have Terri Minor-Spencer join us to share her story of resilience. Terri is the Founder and President of West End P.O.W.E.R., a non-profit organization committed to strengthening communities through activism, advocacy, education, and equity. She is a tireless advocate for her community, where she works closely with returning citizens to reform the Criminal Justice System.
