What is the National Day of Racial Healing?
It is the call to action to help mobilize communities, organizations and individuals across the United States in support of Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation. Overall, communities, organizations and individuals are being asked to 1) proclaim a new narrative that refutes the ideology of a hierarchy of human value and replaces it with the scientifically proven assertion that we are all descendants of one human ancestry endowed by our creator with the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; 2) acknowledge that there are still deep racial divisions in America that must be overcome and healed and 3) commit to engaging representatives from all racial, ethnic, religious and identity groups in genuine efforts to increase understanding, communication, caring and respect for one another and the perceived other.
