This webinar will explore models for racial healing and reconciliation that are community-led and grounded in ancestral and traditional knowledge. Racism is the biggest obstacle to solving the health inequities we face in historically marginalized communities. Join us to hear from BIPOC-led Community Development Corporations that are leading this transformative work to interrogate the role healthcare institutions can play in reconciling past harms and discuss their approaches to repair the harm of racism by building relationships, trust and collective community power. Racial healing can support systemic change and advance healthcare commitments to racial equity by partnering to create anti-racist institutions, policies, and practices.
