Where were you when you first learned about ACEs science? What do you remember about that moment? Were you relieved, scared, shocked, happy or sad?
And where were you when you first learned about ACEs Connection? How did it feel to know there was a community of people who knew some of what you knew, and, perhaps, felt as passionately about learning more of the science and preventing childhood trauma as you do?
On March 4th at 12 pm PT (3 pm ET), we’re stopping for an hour to gather around Zoom screens to celebrate the work of ACEs Connection. We’d love for you to join us to share stories about how we learned about ACEs science, what happened in our personal and work lives as a result of joining ACEs Connection, and what we hope the long-term impact of this knowledge will be.
I launched ACEsConnection.com in January 2012 with 200 members (thanks, Dr. Vincent Felitti!) and no community sites. Today, ACEsConnection.com has become the hub for the ACEs movement. It has 400 communities and passed 50,000 members on Feb. 16. Member #50,000 will join the celebration on March 4.
Here is the link to register and join our online celebration on March 4. Bring a beverage of your choice so that we can toast the members of this incredible community — that’s all of us, 50,000 strong!!
