National Day of Racial Healing

What is racial healing?

Racial healing is at the heart of racial equity.

Racism affects all of us, whether we are aware of it or not. It affects our ability to know, relate to and value one another. Embedded in every one of our systems, racism is one of the biggest obstacles to solving the challenges we face in our communities.

Creating a brighter future starts with racial healing – a process that restores individuals and communities to wholeness. It’s about bringing communities together; building relationships based on truth-telling, trust and mutual respect; and laying the groundwork to take transformative action together.

Participate in Racial Healing

The National Day of Racial Healing is held each year on the Tuesday following Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Communities, businesses, organizations and schools across the country honor the day in a variety of creative ways – all to bring people together in deeper connection.
