Heart of America Annual Survey: The Power of Racial Healing

The National Collaborative for Health Equity (NCHE) recently commissioned a comprehensive survey on American adults that gauges their support for racial healing, the depth of their concerns about the divisive political environment, and their desire to work towards overcoming these challenges. The results show that Americans support racial healing, a less divisive political environment, and an accurate portrayal of racism in schools.

 

 

The National Day of Racial Healing 2024

The National Day of Racial Healing is a time to contemplate our shared values and create the blueprint together for #HowWeHeal from the effects of racism. Launched in 2017, it is an opportunity to bring all people together in their common humanity and inspire collective action to create a more just and equitable world. Find resources, find an event, or take some time to deepen your understanding by visiting DayOfRacialHealing.org.

Leveraging Health Opportunity and Equity

The National Collaborative for Health Equity (NCHE) received a grant to assist local jurisdictions in leveraging the extraordinary health data collected under the Health Opportunity and Equity (HOPE) Initiative. The HOPE state-of-the-art platform supports a new narrative on health inequities and provides achievable pathways for states to eliminate health disparities. The comprehensive data on populations of color is a critical resource for policymakers, as well as the medical and public health fields.

 

 

 

NCHE 2023 Convening

Igniting Change: The NCHE 2023 Convening brought together advocates, experts, and leaders to advance health equity and racial healing. Through engaging dialogue and transformative action, we are creating a future where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive and live a healthy, fulfilling life.

 

 

 

 

Healing through Policy: Creating Pathways to Racial Justice

Through resolutions, executive orders, and other mechanisms, local leaders are declaring racism a public health crisis and committing to addressing systemic health and racial inequities. Local leaders are exploring the policies and practices that are most needed to move from commitment to action and how to best use policy to effect meaningful change toward health, racial equity, and justice. The initiative has identified a suite of racial equity policies and practices that can be implemented at the local level to promote racial healing and address social inequities.
