Healing Our Nation
For more than twenty five-years Healing Our Nation (HON) has been a catalyst for addressing racism in cities across the United States.
Our programs have educated thousands of people, from Alaska to Florida, from government agencies to universities, from corporations to Native American communities.
We offer multi-levels programs that take participants from understanding to strategic planning, from personal empowerment to institutional change.
Daniel Harris, Director of Diversity & Multicultural Education, St. Louis, MO I have been using Healing Our Nation’s materials and workshops with our staff for the last seventeen years. Their programs have assisted me personally by clarifying my thinking regarding racism and oppression and helping me to develop allies in a mostly all white environment.
Once I completed the strategic planning for overcoming racism at our school with a few of my staff, I had even more solid, educated allies who would stand with me to address issues that needed attention. I no longer felt isolated nor did I have to tackle all the problems myself. As a man of African heritage working in a white environment, I have the support that I need to accomplish my goals.
Dee Common, Teacher, Rockford, IL School District In my 29 years of teaching, I have attended various “diversity” trainings. Nothing has ever gotten to the emotional core like “Healing Our Nation” courses. It is vital that we address these issues at this level.
