The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) launched Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) in 2016 as comprehensive, national and community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change, and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism in the United States. In 2017, fourteen places received WKKf support to implement TRHT in their community using a shared framework and Implementation Guidebook, co-developed by more than 144 individuals and organisations. TRHT places include: (1) State of Alaska;(2) Baton Rouge and (3) New Orleans, Louisiana;(4) Buffalo, New York; (5) Greater Chicago, Illinois;(6) Dallas, Texas; (7) Los Angeles, California;(8) Richmond, Virginia; (9) Selma, Alabama;(10) Saint Paul, Minnesota; (11) Battle Creek, (12) flint,(13) Kalamazoo and (14) Metro Lansing, Michigan. As many approach the fourth year of implementation, TRHT collaborations are at the forefront of diverse and interconnected approaches to fostering racial healing, building relationships and changing narratives to advance racial equity in the systems and structures that impact children and families.
