The Community Remembrance Project

Initiatives of Change USA and The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) is pleased to invite community members across Virginia and the greater Richmond region to attend an informational meeting and conversation about opportunities to participate in EJI's Community Remembrance Project. This project advances a more honest conversation and engagement with how our national history, legacies of racial and economic injustice and inequality, continue to inform contemporary issues today.

The Community Remembrance Project involves three companion projects including Soil Collections, Historical Marker Projects, and the upcoming Memorial Monument Placement Initiative. This is a component of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, located in Montgomery, Alabama, and dedicated to over 4,000 African American victims of racial terror lynching in the United States.

Racial Healing Circle Training

Calling all alumni of IofC's Community Trustbuilding Fellowship & Caux Scholars Program!

Fellows and scholars, this one's for you.

Dr. Ram Bhagat and Rob Corcoran will offer an experiential training for IofC alumni from the Community Trustbuilding Fellowship & Caux Scholars Program in the use of Healing Circles as an additional methodology in their toolkit as social change agents. The process focuses on going deeper into the heart space by sharing our personal stories, listening to the sacred stories of others, enabling us to see our common humanity and to support one another in our journey.

Healing Circles have been used widely as the foundation for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s national grantee conferences since 2006 and serve as an important basis for one of IofC USA's grant programs: Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation. The structure is highly adaptable for different needs and different contexts. The training will run from 6 pm to 9 pm on Tuesday, March 19th in Richmond, VA. A light meal will be served at 5 pm. Venue will be announced closer to the date.

Please invite fellow IofC USA alumni from the Caux Scholars Program (CSP) and Community Trustbuilding Fellowship (CTF; formerly known as the Connecting Communities Fellowship Program-CCFP). Please note that space is limited to (14) participants, and there are tiered payment options.
