The National Resource Center for Racial Healing (NRCHR) was created in 1999 as a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization. We begin where diversity training and judicial laws end. All the laws that can be written to eradicate racism have been passed or discussed with much debate. Our focus is creating a society that embraces the reality of the oneness of humankind, and the eradication of racism and its many forms that dehumanize or cause strife. Our methods and process help change the hearts of people by creating a safe environment to explore the disease of racial conditioning. Over fifteen hundred (1,500) have been trained by the NRCHR and the results are exceptional. Our processes not only work, but they are applicable to the masses, companies, and communities.
Most people would agree that racism is a problem in the United States and throughout the world. Recent events such as the September 11, 2001 national tragedy and subsequent retaliation against Arab-looking persons further highlight the need to eliminate all forms of racism within our nation and beyond. While it is true that many individuals and organizations are struggling to combat racism, our country remains divided, finding it difficult to agree on how to eliminate the problem.
Because of racism, the United States is left without its full measure of greatness. The negative effects of racism on all people are being more fully explored and understood. A significant percentage of our population is coping daily with racism, while our entire society has lost the potential of these valuable human beings. The disparate statistical data in education, health care, and criminal justice continues to show the intensity of this issue in our nation.
The unique perspective of the NRCHR centers on the oneness of the human family. This perspective is the next phase in removing barriers among people. We deal with the mind and the heart, and address the undercurrent to which laws and intellect cannot adequately speak. We provide one of the few well-known places where people of different ethnicities, cultures and hues can come together to heal the wounds of racism. This approach is successful because it is grounded on the foundation of the Oneness of Humankind.
The NRCHR promotes a different approach to solving the problem of racism. Rather than traditional education that deals with the intellect and threat of law, we use structured sharing of information and personal experiences. People begin a transformation process – a dialogue of the spirit that can make real changes in how people perceive themselves and others. The NRCHR seeks to take this approach to a broad cross-section of people in the United States, adults and youth, in order to make an impact upon the public conscience and actions regarding racism.
The NRCHR is not intended to replace existing effective avenues of change; but instead we seek opportunities to enhance and support the work of other groups, organizations, or businesses working to eliminate racism. Some of the services we provide include two-day Healing Racism seminars, Institutes for the Healing of Racism development, research assistance, a book and video lending library, special events, a speaker’s bureau, and customized consulting services.
