Restoring to Wholeness: Racial Healing Circles
Thank you for your interest in participating in a racial healing circle right here in our city...where the need is tremendous. Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) is excited to provide opportunities for the greater Chicago community to participate in racial healing circles. TRHT is a comprehensive, community-based process to unearth and jettison the deeply held, and often unconscious, beliefs created by racism. Development and support for our effort is provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

WHAT IS RACIAL HEALING?
Racial healing recognizes the need to acknowledge and tell the truth about past wrongs created by individual and systemic racism and address the present consequences. It is an experience and a tool that can facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that bridge divides created by real and perceived differences. We believe it is essential to pursue racial healing prior to doing change making work in a community. Because, before we can transform systems and structures, we must do the work on ourselves/our people FIRST.

WHAT IS A RACIAL HEALING CIRCLE?
It is a half-day session consisting of both group interactions and smaller, more intimate conversations between 2 partners, called dyads. The experience relies on intentional listening. It can be an emotional experience and even transformational for participants as it can unearth truths and conscious and unconscious biases. It can also raise the awareness, consciousness, compassion and empathy among those who participate. Racial healing practitioners are responsible for helping to ensure that these circles are confidential safe spaces for participants to have truthful conversations with one another.
