Truth & Healing: A Call to Action

Racism remains this nation’s Achilles’ heel. If we do not face it and fix it, we will continue to suffer. We have a long way to go to fulfill America’s promise of justice and equal opportunity for every American. To get closer to fulfilling that aspiration, we first need a consensus about the history of racism in the U.S. and the effect it still has today.  Facing our nation’s dark truths is the first step towards healing. 

Join us as we explore how formal Truth & Healing models can be implemented in the U.S.
