National Day of Racial Healing


The National Day of Racial Healing (#NDORH) is a part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) effort – a national and community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change, and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism.

Jan. 16, 2018 is the second annual National Day of Racial Healing. The day was established in 2017 by more than 550 U.S. leaders who wanted to set aside a day to take action together and:

1. Find ways to reinforce and honor our common humanity and create space to celebrate the distinct differences that make our communities vibrant.

2. Acknowledge that there are still deep racial divisions in America that must be overcome and healed, and

3. Commit to engaging people from all racial, ethnic, religious and identity groups in genuine efforts to increase understanding, communication, caring and respect for one another.
