National Day of Racial Healing
W.K. Kellogg Foundation, January 19
The day will be centered around experiences rooted in truth-telling that lead to racial healing for a more just and equitable future.  It’s a day for authentic dialogues, so we can start to see and hear each other.  A day to share our stories, to recognize our shared humanity, so we can come together and transform the world around us.

Action Kit with tools to support working internally, building partnerships and a template for creating Racial Healing and Racial Equity Proclamations
