Racial healing restores individuals and communities to wholeness. Racial healing repairs the damage caused by racism. It facilitates trust, builds authentic relationships and bridges divides.
Racial healing is at the heart of racial equity – the people work that leads to community, organizational and systems transformation.
Racial healing takes more than one day. Any time is a good time to bring people together, cultivate trust, build relationships or tell true stories about your community or organization’s racial past.
A 14-part digital series, Changing The Narrative, explores the subject of advancing racial equity through the experience of racial healing, produced by NBCUniversal News Group, and sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
To realize a society free of systemic injustice, we must come together to heal, exploring and unraveling the deeply held racial biases of the past.
Join us for the live premiere of the National Day of Racial Healing on Jan. 19 at 3 p.m. EST / 12 p.m. PST.
