Racial Healing

Racial healing refers to the process of how a culture or community attempts to reconcile after certain members have been oppressed, discriminated against, and had their rights violated because of their real or perceived ethnic background. It involves accounting for many different perspectives on justice and healing, and it is impossible to achieve without listening to and trusting the experiences of those who do not fit the culture’s default standard appearance. When those who have benefitted from racial oppression are willing to accept the injustice of those benefits, we become capable of working collectively to dismantle entrenched systems that uphold racism and transform our environments to benefit all.
