Addressing Race-Based Trauma in Schools
Santa Clara County Office of Education’s Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) Program partners with the Leadership Academy to bring you a leadership webinar series featuring content experts from across the country to tackle just-in-time topics and discuss tangible strategies that schools and school systems can adopt around alternatives to suspensions for vape/tobacco related offenses and beyond.

The purpose of these webinars is to:

• Leverage COVID-19 as our “equity check” to ensure that all students remain socially, emotionally, and academically whole throughout and after the pandemic

• Support a deeper understanding of restorative practices in order to reduce out-of-school time and provide targeted and customized supports for students

• Provide a local and national lens around best practices highlighting the urgency and necessity to rebuild school climate and culture through a strengths-based, relationship-building, and equity-focused approach

Webinar Objectives:

- Exploring the toxic stress of racism which we know contributes to adverse mental and physical health effects of BIPOC youth and families

- Unpacking the intended and unintended consequences for vulnerable populations when mitigating racial trauma

- Creating spaces for students to share their feelings freely in courageous and safe spaces centered on healing

- Addressing unhealthy youth coping mechanisms such as tobacco and vaping
