Storytelling and healing is the foundation of the work done by the Race2Equity Initiative by providing tools to amplify the voices of those most impacted by systemic racism in Michigan. We honor lived experiences as a pathway to healing and transformation. Unique to this work is the value placed on the role of listening. It is in creating a space for intentional listening that we are able to envision these pathways to justice and healing. Healing Stories is used as an intersectional tool in all our work.
