National Day of Racial Healing

Healing is at the heart of racial equity. WSU Everett is participating in the WSU System’s inaugural National Day of Racial Healing on Tuesday, January 17. Racial healing is a tool and a process for celebrating our common humanity, acknowledging the truths from our shared history, and recognizing our collective potential. Through racial healing, we forge deep, meaningful relationships and lay the groundwork for transforming broken systems. Joining individuals, organizations, and communities across the U.S. in this effort helps bridge divides and transform communities for our future generations.

The National Day of Racial Healing at WSU is intended to help the university community develop critical and reflexive thinking that directly supports culturally and racially non-harming, compassionate and ethical practices.

The National Day of Racial Healing at WSU will open with a virtual panel discussion on truth, racial healing, and transformation across the WSU system that will be facilitated by Lisa Guerrero, WSU Pullman vice chancellor for equity and inclusive excellence. Opening Ceremonies begin at 9:10 a.m. on Zoom. Additional scheduled activities on the day include healing circles, a drum circle, yoga and mindfulness sessions, and more. See the day’s events online.
