Beyond Trigger: Empowering Gun Violence Survivors

January 20, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm at Franklin Township Library

Beyond Triggers: Empowering Gun Violence Support Group

Welcome to “Beyond Triggers,” a monthly gathering that transcends the traumatic experiences of gun violence and empowers survivors and advocates to take back their lives. We meet every 3rd Saturday of the month to provide a safe space for healing, support, and personal growth.

What to Expect:

🤝 Community and Connection: Beyond Triggers is a place where survivors, their families, and allies can come together in solidarity. It’s a community where understanding and empathy are the building blocks of healing.

🗣️ Open and Supportive Discussions: Share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a non-judgmental environment. Connect with others who have walked similar paths and discover strength in vulnerability.

🌱 Empowerment: The group is not just about surviving but thriving. It’s a platform for empowerment, where survivors and advocates find their voices, their purpose, and their path to creating positive change.

🔑 Resources and Education: Access information and resources related to trauma recovery, mental health support, legal advocacy, and community outreach. We believe that knowledge is power.

🎨 Art Therapy and Healing: Explore creative expression as a means of healing. Art therapy can be a powerful tool for processing emotions and finding solace.

📅 Meeting Details:

  • Date: Every 3rd Saturday of the month
  • Time: 12pm-1:30pm
  • Location: Franklin Township Public Library Somerset, NJ

Whether you are a survivor, a loved one, or someone passionate about ending gun violence, Beyond Triggers is a space where you can find strength, hope, and a sense of purpose. Together, we can go “beyond triggers” and work towards a future where gun violence is a distant memory.

Join us on the 3rd Saturday of each month and take the first step towards empowerment, healing, and creating change. You are not alone, and your voice matters.
