2021 National Day Of Racial Healing Comes At A Critical Time For The U.S.

Organizers are holding a virtual day of racial healing dialogues for individuals and communities hurt by racism.

The Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Greater Chicago initiative is virtually hosting its fifth annual National Day of Racial Healing on Jan. 19. This is against the backdrop of last week’s violent seizure of the U.S. Capitol by rioters, including avowed white supremacists.

Reset brings on one of the lead organizers and two youth leaders to discuss what they have planned for the day.

GUESTS: José Rico, director of Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Greater Chicago
