The Let’s Talk series was created in the aftermath of the Parkland School shooting.
After hearing person after person say, “We need to talk about mental health.”, ELLA created the Let’s Talk Community Discussion program to bring people together to learn about the causes and effects of mental illness, trauma, and incarceration on our society.
Let’s Talk events are not lectures; they are dialogues. The events are styled after townhall events. Each event includes a panel of local professionals and academics and at least one community member who speak on topic. Audience participation is encouraged.
