Aurora Strong Resilience Center's Day of Remembrance on 7/20
A Message from the Aurora Theater Shooting SERG Outreach Team
The Community Support Team has been getting out into the city meeting with all kinds of wonderful groups and organizations, as well as knocking on some doors in the neighborhoods. Now we invite the community to join us at the Aurora Strong Resilience Center for free events that will not only educate citizens about the individual effects of stress, traumatic experiences, and resilience, but also about how traumatic events can effect communities. The education piece will be quite informal, and we will focus on discussions and creating connections between community members. While the content will not be focused only on the Aurora Theater tragedy, we hope to reach people who may be experiencing anniversary reactions, or are anxious about the coming trial.
