Trauma Informed LA was created by 10 passionate individuals as a solution to the lack of trauma-informed community building in the Los Angeles area. We recognized the need for organizations that highlighted storytelling from an anti-racist, trauma-informed, and healing-centered lens. We combat white-centered narratives and acts of erasure by highlighting community engagement, education, and collaboration aligned with our social justice priorities. By dismantling false narratives through storytelling, we uplift communities in Los Angeles that have been perpetually marginalized and disenfranchised. In the words of Janet Mock, TILA believes that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to each other, is a revolutionary act. Storytelling is political. Storytelling is collective healing. Storytelling is liberating.
