With racial divisiveness rising across America, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF), together with more than 130 organizations, is committed to an emerging Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) enterprise. They are calling for an annual National Day of Healing, and the first was held on January 17, 2017. Commemorations of all types and sizes were held around the nation.
The goal is to spur efforts to heal the wounds created by racial, ethnic, and religious bias and build an equitable and just society in which all children thrive. It is a response to the broad call for healing following the contentious rhetoric of recent months. Such calls for healing have come from both President Obama and President-elect Trump, as well as from leaders in 32 states.
Richmond is fortunate in having many groups committed to justice and reconciliation. This site will be a place for those in Richmond to connect with these groups and the important work they are doing. It will also be a repository of stories that demonstrate what truth, racial healing, and transformation looks like in the lives of real people.
