Summer of Healing
We are partnering with leaders in 12 communities to kick off a summer of healing, focused on finding and supporting solutions that build trust between communities and law enforcement to create safer neighborhoods. Each leader is bringing a different approach from addressing mental health to adopting new technology based on their own unique role in their community. Together, they could create the start to real change across the country.
Why Focus on Racial Justice?
We always have. Our leadership team has been deeply involved in this fight for decades. Inspired by the acts of recent years, we have brought our individual efforts together under the banner of Heal America. We’re partnering with Stand Together Foundation whose deep belief in communities can help leaders in all sectors – those the forefront of our country’s fight for equal rights – get access to resources, capital, and training to reach more communities, faster.
HBCU Legacies Shared
In partnership with Getty Images, we’re working with four HBCUs to preserve and digitize photos that tell the history of each university. Photos purchased from the Getty archives help create scholarships for students at each participating university. This initiative will continue to bring more opportunities to share the deep history of HBCUs throughout the country as we add more universities to the effort next year!
Breaking Bread & Bridging Divides
Are Americans as divided as we think? Watch ‘Breaking Bread’ – where six people, with very different reasons for coming to the table, pull up a seat and rediscover what we have in common.
What We Do
The fight for racial justice calls for big ideas. And Heal America empowers leaders throughout the country to level up the local, innovative solutions that are creating change in their communities. A new generation of leaders is taking up the mantle in the fight for progress with new backgrounds, new voices, and new methods of getting things done. We help by investing in and connecting the network support of a movement of people motivated to do the same thing – achieve equal justice for all.
