Building a Resilient Yolo
A Pledge to Build a More Resilient Yolo Community
Realize the widespread impact trauma and toxic stress has on me, my friends, family, neighbors and community members;
Recognize the signs and symptoms of toxic stress;
Recognize that inequities that currently and historically exist in our community amplify the impact of toxic stress;
Will Respond by explicitly and actively seeking to create healthy and stable relationships with those around me;
Recognize that my active participation in resilience building activities creates connections and intersections throughout the community and across organizations– amplifying the positive impact we have;
Will at all times seek to actively resist re-traumatization and thereby build resilience in myself and those around me.
