As Rita Starr grew to recognize the pain of racial discrimination in the United States, she set out to become an ally to help overcome racism.
The result of her commitment to racial justice has been the:
- Development of the Healing Our Nation programs
- Facilitation of train-the-trainer trainings at the grassroots level to reach deeper into our communities and local institutions
- Publication of books– Making Sense of Racism and the soon to be released Spiritual Principles to Overcome Racism.
- Creation of an organization to empower cities to reeducate their citizens and connect program graduates to share their knowledge and successes in overcoming racism locally as well as nationally (Healing Our Nation Network.)
