2021 Virtual National Forum: Brazelton Touchpoints Center

April 6, 2021 - April 8, 2021

Please join us for three days of knowledge sharing and learning as we explore the effects of racism and trauma on children, families, and communities, and how together we can advance racial equity and justice.

This year’s Forum is virtual, and each day begins with a plenary presentation, followed by two 90-minute workshops with concurrent choices. Several workshops are repeated across the three days. Each day also includes built-in breaks and networking sessions. You can register to attend all three days, or select the days and sessions that most interest you.
All sessions will have live Spanish translation available.
