The National Day of Racial Healing

top

Tune in to the livestream curated by Ava Duvernay.

“On January 22, 2019, gather your family, friends, colleagues and community for the National Day of Racial Healing. Join thousands across the country in celebrating our common humanity and taking collective action toward a more just and equitable world.

The National Day of Racial Healing is a part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation effort – a national, community-based process of transformative, sustainable change, addressing the historic and contemporary effects of racism.

Conceived in 2016 through a collaborative effort of more than 550 U.S. leaders, the National Day of Racial Healing is a time to:

1. Reinforce and honor our common humanity, while celebrating the distinct differences that make our communities vibrant.
2. Acknowledge the deep racial divisions that exist in America and must be overcome and healed.
3. Commit to engaging people from all racial and ethnic groups in genuine efforts to increase understanding, communication, caring and respect for one another.

Please join us by planning or participating in activities in your own community. Be sure to tag your social media posts with #HowWeHeal.”
