Subject: Join Me for the National Day of Racial Healing!




On January 19, 2021, I invite you to join me for the 5th annual National Day of Racial Healing. The day will center around experiences rooted in truth-telling that lead to racial healing for a more just and equitable future. To realize a society free of systemic injustice, we must explore and unravel the deeply held racial biases of the past — the biases that hold us back from unleashing our collective energy and potential.
