In his 2008 speech on race, titled "A More Perfect Union," then-candidate Barack Obama described a "racial stalemate we've been stuck in for years." He suggested that, if we don't do something different, "nothing will change." A decade later, we're still stuck. How do we move forward? Using an approach known as "racial healing," facilitators will lead participants through a process that invites story-telling, vulnerability, and deep listening. The goal is to provide leaders with a tool currently used by hundreds of organizations to help uproot the flawed belief in a racial hierarchy. A publication from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation entitled "Restoring to Wholeness (hyperlink: https://www.wkkf.org/resource-directory/resource/2018/02/restoring-to-wholeness--racial-healing-for-ourselves-our-relationships-and-our-communities) " can help you understand more about what racial healing is and what racial healing circles can help you achieve.
