Racial Healing & Racial Equity


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.




TRHT Legacy Places: 15 multi-sector collaborations in different locations across the United States that are participating in the TRHT initiative. They work to replace the belief system that fuels racism with one that sees the inherent value of all people.




Mapping Support for Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation

This map, created in partnership with the Truth Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) Movement, serves as a living resource for information on various organizations and initiatives committed to racial equity. It includes data from TRHT Movement Organizations, Transitional Justice Initiatives in the United States (NESL/MHC), and Congressional support for TRHT. The map is regularly updated and provides an interactive way to visualize the work being done in the field of racial healing and transformation across the United States.
