The Board of Trustees of the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg invite you to a post-election Virtual Town Hall. We are at a moral crossroads of race in America. A moment when division and fear have become the norm and the common good is waning. We all have racist views, practices and beliefs, known and unknown. Antiracism is the antidote to change ourselves, our communities and our systems that generate early demise, added disease, and the heavy burden of not being white to members of our community. Being and acting as antiracists requires communal connections.
In this moment, the Foundation serves a specific function: to convene a diverse community across races, ages, and sectors focused on peaceful approaches that accelerate race equity. Moving forward includes practice at ongoing expression of our experiences with one another. And deeply listening to understand the experiences of others. Moving forward is also finding ways to heal - healing can inspire healthy actions to solutions. We seek a way forward – through ongoing expression to and with one another. We offer shared experiences and pathways to move into healing. And together we act on a path forward.
