Trauma is a silent epidemic in our world.  Trauma shatters a person – left untreated and unhealed, it prevents one from working, caring for loved ones and leading a healthy, productive, fulfilling life.  Trauma poses insurmountable challenges especially to the most vulnerable in our society.

Atrocities... refuse to be buried. Equally as powerful as the desire to deny atrocities is the conviction that denial does not work...

Remembering and telling the truth about terrible events are prerequisites both for the restoration of the social order and for the healing of individual victims.

- Judith Herman

Starting in 2012, Living Ubuntu is hoping to launch a Trauma Recovery Program for refugees, immigrants and victims of domestic violence.  Our 1st year budget for this community-wide program is a little over $101,000.  All funds raised at this event will go towards launching this program.  Find out more » 

We need your support!
