When: January 18, 2022, at 2 p.m.
Our sixth annual National Day of Racial Healing is an opportunity to bring people together in their common humanity and inspire collective action to create a more just and equitable world. Last year, thousands of people participated by viewing the virtual event and attending more than a hundred locally-hosted events held online.
Now, more than ever, we need to actively come together and ensure our racial healing moments become movements.
Please join us on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022, beginning at 2 p.m. along with our host, Soledad O’Brien, and featuring La June Montgomery Tabron, Heather McGhee, John Legend, Julissa Calderon, Linda Sarsour, Supaman, Reyes and more. (Closed captioning available in English, Haitian Creole & Spanish .)
