Jacqueline Miller is the founder of Healthy Actions Intervening Responsibly (H.A.I.R.). Since August 2018 she has conducted trainings on local and national platforms to raise the awareness of "Adultfication" on children. To date, 202 professionals have participated in Healthy Actions' trainings on adultification. She shares her knowledge and expertise on the impact domestic violence and sexualization has on children’s health, understanding trauma and adverse childhood experiences, and the impact adultification has children’s lives and well-being.
Through story-telling, audiences learn about how my “story” unfolds in three dimensions of the gender-based violence movement and the groundbreaking study on adultification and the erasure of black girls' childhoods. As a trainer and facilitator, I provide a framework for building resilience with youth and communities.
Resilience is responsible for the development and construction of the 28 years of work experience that I hold within the gender-based violence movement.
Not only do I have "lived experience", but also over 28 years of work experience in the field. I am often chosen to speak, train, and facilitate because of my expertise. I was the survivor speaker at the 2018 Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) and got a standing ovation at the end of my presentation.
