The Racial Equity/Racial Healing Network survey was designed to solicit views on the potential value of creating a network of racial equity/racial healing organizations and practitioners and on the types of activities that would maximize such a network's value to organizations. The discussion about this network started at an open space discussion at the America Healing Conference hosted by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in New Orleans in April 2012. The discussion continued during two meetings of racial healing and racial equity practitioners convened in Chicago by the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation through the generous support of the Kellogg Foundation. All of the participants in these meetings have a strong belief that by working together we can strengthen efforts to achieve racial equity and racial healing. Though the initial convenings were supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, this is currently not a grant-funded program or an initiative of the foundation.
