The National Day of Racial Healing is a time to contemplate our shared values and create the blueprint together for how we heal from the effects of racism. Launched in 2017, it is an opportunity to bring ALL people together in their common humanity and inspire collective action to create a more just and equitable world.

This annual observance was created by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Fundamental to this day is a clear understanding that racial healing is at the core of racial equity. This day is observed every year on the Tuesday following Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Click here to learn more.
