The Dane County Trauma Informed Community Advisory Council is hosting 2 free screenings of the documentary “Paper Tigers” in May. The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington and explores the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and toxic stress on struggling teens. Lincoln High Alternative School became a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence, and disease that affect families by radically changing their approach to disciplining students and implementing trauma-informed practice and strategies.

Viewings will be held on two dates and at two locations, and RSVP is required.

Thursday, May 5th at 6:30-9:00 PM at Memorial High School. RSVP to
