This day is about acknowledgment and cultural shift in healing.  We will be starting with historical recognition of how we got to where we are, examples, colonization, history of casework as usual etc.  This is an advocacy specialty of Campbell’s and a personal passion for him.  It represents a great deal of both his National and International work.  We will then move into what can be done now- Self-Healing Communities which is truly important for every org, system and person seeking change.
