The 2020 Maryland Family Engagement Summit Webinar Series
Join us Thursday, September 10, 2020 from 3 – 4:30 p.m. ET for the second session of the 2020 Maryland Family Engagement Summit Webinar Series.

Mental Health and Trauma will feature Dr. Howard Stevenson, the Constance Clayton Professor of Urban Education, Professor of Africana Studies, in the Human Development and Quantitative Methods Division of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. He is also the Executive Director of the Racial Empowerment Collaborative at the Penn Graduate School of Education, which is designed to promote racial literacy in education, health, community, and justice institutions.

Participants will:

● Examine the effects of racial stress and trauma on everyday life;
● Discuss how the pandemic and current manifestations of racism can trigger further trauma; and
● Explore racial literacy strategies and considerations for re-engaging children and families and for supporting their well-being.


The 2020 Maryland Family Engagement Summit Webinar Series includes five engaging virtual events on the second Thursday of every month. Each webinar will feature national and local experts who will share research-based strategies designed to meet the educational needs of diverse student populations, their families, and communities. The Summit will provide a collegial and supportive atmosphere for exchanging ideas with district leaders, school and early childhood administrators, teachers, providers, families, community members, and nonprofit partners from school districts throughout the State of Maryland. The Summit is a collaboration between the Maryland State Department of Education, the Maryland Family Engagement Coalition, and MAEC. More information can be found at marylandfamiliesengage.org.
