Chicago, racism is hurting us all.

Chicago is overdue for a reckoning on racism.

The rallying cries affirming that Black Lives Matter have caused incredible changes to our public discourse about race. The specter of racial injustice has plagued our city long before the brutal killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery made headlines worldwide and spurred a wave of resistance throughout the nation. Leaders in government, business, and civic life are now making new calls to eliminate systemic racism. Our response to these calls for action must meet the moment, and move beyond statements and diversity training to substantially improve the quality of life for Black and Brown Chicagoans.

A letter to the Editor.

White Chicagoans, I want to invite you to a conversation just for you: A racial healing circle for white people. It’s time for you to come together and talk about racism with the help of trained facilitators. Let’s face it: You’re not doing so well making this happen on your own. 

 

Let me give you some background on why this must happen now. 

 

For years, Black and Brown and Native Chicagoans have provided policy recommendations that would decrease the wealth and death gaps in our communities. Most have been ignored. The result? Growing inequities over the past 30 years. The COVID-19 pandemic reveals how vulnerable these communities are to death and how inept public and economic policies are to protect them.

It is not the responsibility of one person, or even one organization to drive this work. The responsibility belongs to all of us to participate in these honest, powerful and moving experiences as we pursue this journey together. 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.
