Summary
The National Day of Healing is celebrated annually the day after the national holiday for Martin Luther King Jr.

On the National Day of Racial Healing, associations and neighborhoods across the US join together to focus on their common humanity and build the relationships essential to ensure a fair world.

Racial Healing paves the way for acknowledgement and revelations of the truth about past wrongs due to individual and systemic racism and address the present.

The National Day of Racial Healing originated in 2017 under W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation efforts, which serves as a community and national-based- process to determine and bring about transformational and sustainable change in addition to talking about the historical and contemporary effects of racism in U.S. society.

Those observing the day are encouraged to acknowledge the historical and contemporary effects of racism in American society and foster greater awareness and understanding through truth-telling, affirming our common humanity, and inspiring collective, nonviolent action toward a more just and equitable world. NDORH is observed each year following the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday to allow us all to further draw upon the life lessons of the venerable civil rights leader.
