Trauma, Violence Against, and Social Justice Advocacy in the Black Community

On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, Dr. Sapp had the pleasure of speaking virtually on the topic “Trauma, Violence, and Social Justice Advocacy among the Black Community” to the DC and Virginia Chapters of the National Black MBA Association.

While it was a great opportunity to share her knowledge, Dr. Sapp can admit she was saddened that such a conversation has to be had.

The continued perpetuation of violence and senseless killings of African Americans (both male and female) as well as other social injustices by powerful institutions is overwhelming, uncalled for and traumatizing to minorities, both directly and indirectly.

Dr. Sapp, while sharing with the members of DC and Virginia’s Black MBA Association Chapter members, IMPLORED them all as well as all minorities and other Allies to begin “MAKING SOME NOISE” about the continued yet unnecessary social injustices plaguing minorities…. especially African Americans!

Now, more than ever, we should be taking action to bring awareness along with holding our institutions (judicial, criminal justice/law enforcement, educational, political) accountable for their actions. We MUST STAND for JUSTICE by Advocating and Demanding Change!
