As we strive to center trauma informed care principles in systems and organizations where all voices are valued, we must elevate the voices from many communities. Trauma Informed Oregon (TIO) is committed to serving Oregon and we hope that this page can provide ways for you to find community in your work.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Trauma Informed Oregon works with all organizations and agencies to create systematic changes to alleviate and reduce the recurrence of trauma experienced from policies and procedures that perpetuate inequities.

TIO believes that when trauma informed care is done appropriately it will stand on the principles of equity bringing forth the possibility of healing and the inclusiveness of all identities. As such, we have created an Equity Statement to show our commitment to elevate those voices and always strive to center people of color and marginalized populations within the state we are committed to serve.

TIO's Pledge of Solidarity

As a leading advocate for trauma informed care (TIC) in Oregon, TIO stands in solidarity with those affected by racist policies and actions. We have created a pledge of solidarity that includes a statement and resources that we hope will help everyone engaged in TIC work to challenge themselves to create better systems.

Voices from the Community

These videos were created as a way to learn about trauma informed care from various perspectives. Although the principles of trauma informed care are used in many communities, these principles often look different in practice or are called something else depending on the group. TIO would like to highlight these perspectives.
