Thank You for Attending- Racial Healing Community Discussion

 

National_Day_of_Racial_Healing.png

Good morning Friend --

"It is not the responsibility of one person, one group, or even one organization to drive this work. The responsibility belongs to all of us to participate in these honest, powerful, and moving experiences, and pursue this journey together. Through racial healing, we can all forge deep, meaningful relationships, lay the groundwork to transform broken systems, and create a world in which, together, we are a new force for positive change." - Healourcommunities.org

Thank you for joining our National Day of Racial Healing event. It was our pleasure to facilitate this community discussion with many of our Durham neighbors. We thank you for being vulnerable in sharing your thoughts and feelings around racial trauma and healing. As promised, we rounded up the resources our neighbors shared in the chat during our discussion...
