In 2009 the W.K. Kellogg Foundation launched its America Healing initiative, supporting racial equity/racial healing projects in over 100 communities. Building on this initiative, the Foundation has launched a Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation enterprise (TRHT) designed to uproot the myth of a hierarchy of human value based on race. As a framework, it has prepared case studies on several America Healing communities. This session will examine principles employed, activities that have proven most effective, cross-sector collaborations, successes and challenges, and lessons learned. A question and answer period will explore how library workers can be engaged in the TRHT process.
