Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation ™ (TRHT) is a comprehensive, multi-year national and community-based process to bring about transformational and sustainable change. Through TRHT, the Foundation (WKKF) partners with and supports local efforts to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism in communities and institutions. They work to replace the deeply held belief system that fuels racism with one that sees the inherent value of all people. TRHT communities engage in narrative change, racial healing and relationship building as part of an approach that undergirds efforts to transform society through the dismantling of institutional racism by specifically addressing separation, law, and the economy. WKKF engaged over 170 national partners in 2015 and 2016 and, with them, developed and piloted the TRHT framework and process. The following year WKKF provided grants to plan and implement TRHT to fourteen communities across the country. Each community determined its priorities and course of action in implementing the TRHT framework. This resource shares key insights and learnings from the experiences and ongoing work of those communities.
