2022 National Day of Racial Healing

January 18 , 3:00 pm EST 4:00 pm EST

Join The W.K. Kellogg Foundation for the live premiere of the National Day of Racial Healing on Jan. 18 at 3 p.m. EST

Creating a brighter future for everyone starts with racial healing. We have an opportunity to transform the systems that disrupt so many lives. It’s about bringing communities together to create new ones built on foundations of: Relationship-building, truth-telling and racial equity; Healing and solidarity; Transformative action.

That work begins with us – with each individual, group and community. You can help chart the path forward toward racial equity in your own community and beyond. Start by downloading our resources for action below.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
