Kellogg Foundation Presidential Panel at the Carter Center
Saturday, March 18| 4:30 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Start your Welcome Reception experience with a pre-reception Presidential Panel addressing social equity issues. ASPA will be joined by the Kellogg Foundation's senior advisor and vice president for Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT), Gail Christopher. Christopher will lead a discussion around Kellogg's Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation initiative, a national and community-based process designed to engage communities in racial healing and change efforts that address current inequities linked to the belief in a racial hierarchy. It is an adaptation of some of the most recognized Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) models. This is a multi-year effort designed to engage local, regional and national organizations in both the public and private sectors to explore historic patterns and structural racism, so that we may begin to identify both short- and long-term strategies for meaningful change across the country.
Our goal is to bridge deeply embedded divides and generate the will, capacities and resources required for achieving greater equity across the nation. We believe, if we are able to tell a story broader than the dominant narrative about our country’s history, we can heal our communities for a stronger future for all children.
