National Day of Racial Healing in Los Angeles – January 16, 2017 (Tuesday) @ 9:00 am

Dear Fellow Angeleno:

We invite you to participate in the National Day of Racial Healing (NDORH) this coming Tuesday, January 16.  NDORH is an opportunity for people, organizations and communities across the United States to call for racial healing, to bring people together in their common humanity, and take collective action to create a more just and equitable world.  It is part of the larger Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) effort—a national and community-based process organized by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change, and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism.  We are excited that the Foundation designated Los Angeles as one of the ten TRHT cities in their inaugural effort.
Along with our TRHT-LA partners, we are marking this important day in Southern California in a few ways. Together we have compiled a list of things you can do individually or organizationally this year to advance equity and help heal Southern California.  Both lists are attached here. Please feel free to share these far and wide.
Also, we invite you to join us at one of our exciting events throughout the day:
