“Keeping the light on ACEs”
Meet Brittny Ellington, MBA, founder and executive director of The Crow Heal Project, and service learning host site and mentor for Mailman students
Established in 2022 and based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, The Crow Heal Project aims to train and educate the local community and medical providers on ACEs and offers tools to build resilience in children and families. Brittny uses art and expressions of creativity as a pathway to healing childhood trauma, and she incorporates art into programming and messaging. Watch as Brittny raps about her personal ACEs and trauma journey.
Mailman students enrolled in our Spring 2023 ACEs course collaborated with Brittny to develop a 7-week social media campaign targeting parents whose child experienced ACEs and for adult survivors of ACEs. Visit The Crow Heal Project on Facebook and Instagram to view the campaign- we encourage you to share the campaign with your networks!
