As leaders across the nation continue to tackle issues such as violence, gun safety, and emergency response, we must take a holistic approach to building safe communities, safer schools, and safer families. Safe communities are built by providing solutions to all issues that affect public health, creating progressive cities, and equipping individuals to become self reliant and knowledgeable. The 2013 ResilienC Symposium aims to encourage conversation, introduce research and successful case studies and program models, and share best-practice protocols for bettering our communities and equipping them for the future.
The 2013 ResilienC Symposium will help individuals see what other cities and local communities are doing, identify what they themselves want for their communities, and provide ways for achieving it. What’s more, as the purpose of the Symposium is to encourage dialogue that will result in action, the event will provide the opportunity for educators, leaders and government officials to foster relationships for future collaborative efforts.
