Indigenous activist and Montana State University student, Connie Brownotter talks with Lindsay Peoples Wagner about the power of young people to initiate racial healing conversations on their campuses. She also reflects on the importance of embracing cultural identity as a part of racial healing.
Through racial healing, we recognize our common humanity, acknowledge our truths from our shared history, and recognize our collective potential and shared values.
The National Day of Racial Healing was established by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in 2017 to promote healing as a critical path for ending racial bias and creating a society in which all children can thrive. This annual outreach grew out of WKKF’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation effort, a national and community-based process designed to bring transformational and sustainable change to communities, while addressing the historic and contemporary effects of racism.
Together, this is #HowWeHeal.
