Kellogg Foundation as part of their Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Framework,20 provides resources for libraries and other groups to participate in the annual event.

On January 16, 2020, the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) announced that 13 institutions would “host Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Campus Centers.”21 This brought the total number of AAC&U TRHT centers to 23 with a long-term goal of 150 centers throughout the United States. The purpose of these centers is to use the pillars of TRHT to “prepare the next generation of leaders to confront racism and to dismantle the belief in a hierarchy of human value.” These campuses not only participate in the National Day of Racial Healing, but also participate in workshops, consultations, and designing and co-facilitating Rx Racial Healing Circles, while following the five pillars of the TRHT framework.
