“One way is to simply start a conversation—with friends, family, neighbors, or co-workers. Many people would like to talk about the impact of racism—and the need for racial healing—but don’t know where to start. The ‘National Day of Racial Healing’ features local activities—across the country—to bring people together. This year, filmmaker Ava DuVernay is curating a national livestream-event—to amplify the conversation about racial healing. Healing is at the heart of racial equity; our goal is to bridge divides, affirm our common humanity, and together create more-just and -equitable communities.”
Events are planned across the country. 19 events have been planned in Michigan, including one at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint beginning at noon. Two events will also take place in Lansing.
