Description: "Metro-Omaha Raise Me to Read hosted its second virtual screening of Resilience The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, partnering with The Wellbeing Partners and featuring their Mental Health/ACEs Call to Action report. A child reared in adversity experiences toxic stress, which affects brain architecture, behavior, current and future health, and readiness to learn. Of course, then, this subject is important to both of our organizations. It is important to (in words from the film) “weave the understanding” about adversity and resilience throughout our community so that it can make “wise choices” and move from reacting to problems to responding. Maverick|PR assisted in outreach and pitches to local news and school entities. The March screening had 76 individuals whose affiliation includes 36 entities in 14 different cities, three states, and two countries. The entities include (noting the cities of those who are not from Omaha) : Diocese of San Hose (Los Altos, CA), EDGE (Nebraska City, NE), Buffett Early Childhood Institute, University of Nebraska Omaha, Juvenile Justice Institute, University of East Anglia (Suffolk & Lincolnshire, United Kingdom), St. Lucy’s Catholic Church (Campbell & Los Gatos, CA), One World Health, Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance, Lincoln Public Schools (Lincoln, NE), Douglas County Health and Human Services, Omaha Public Schools, Learning Center of South Omaha, Educare/Indian Hill, Papillion LaVista Public Schools (Papillion, NE), Citylight Church, Omaha Street School, Galvin Nonprofit Consulting Service, Beaufort Hyde Partnership for Children (Greenville, NC), International Council for Refugees & Immigrants/Americorps, College of St. Mary, Wake County Public Library [WCPL] (Raleigh, NC), Roots & Shoots Learning (Milton Keynes, United Kingdom), Immigrant Legal Center, Lutheran Family Services, Wholeheartedly LLC, UNL Trauma Informed Educators (Lincoln, NE), Nebraska Extension (Grand Island, NE), UNL Extension (O’Neil, NE), UNL Extension, Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln, Metropolitan Omaha Planning Agency, First Presbyterian Church, Independent/Non-Affiliated (Lincoln & Omaha).
