The goal of NCHE’s Racial Equity & Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) is to jettison the false belief in the hierarchy of human value; while committing to transforming our culture into one that honors all equally.
NCHE’s racial equity and racial healing initiatives seek to build on national and local efforts, to tell the truth about our pasts to provide a foundation for charting our futures. They provide support and a framework for ongoing racial equity/racial healing activities, recognizing that lasting racial equity and racial healing are inextricably woven together.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation has released tools to assist with the national and community-based TRHT plans such as the TRHT implementation guidebook. This guidebook will assist individuals, organizations, communities, and First Nations in planning, implementing and evaluating the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation efforts.
