TRHT Solidarity Question

What would Chicago look like when Black, Brown, Indigenous and Asian people come together to acknowledge our truth, center our healing and build solidarity based on mutual respect and love?


Through Racial Healing, we can all forge deep, meaningful relationships, lay the groundwork to transform broken systems, and create a world in which together we are a new force for positive change. It is not the responsibility of one person or even one organization to drive the work. The responsibility belongs to all of us to participate in these honest, powerful, and moving experiences as we pursue this journey together.

Racial Healing Practitioner, Basic Certificate

We are proud to announce that Kennedy-King College will offer a Racial Healing Practitioner Basic Certificate course beginning this fall! The course aims to jettison the false belief in a hierarchy of human value and replace that archaic notion with a reverence and appreciation for the equal and interconnected nature of the human family. The Racial Healing Practitioner Basic Certificate will cover the five components of the racial Healing Framework which are Narrative Change, Racial Healing, and Relationship Building, Separation, Law, and Economy. The ultimate goal of the Racial Healing Practitioner Basic Certificate is to expand the community of healers by training, empowering, and emboldening youth, and youth workers.
