About this Event

The National Day of Racial Healing (#HowWeHeal) occurs the day after MLK Day, and is a call for racial healing, celebration of our common humanity and to take collective action to create a more just and equitable world. The Equity Institute at YWCA Evanston/North Shore will host a virtual lunchtime panel discussion on: Racial Healing and Reparations: Two Steps Towards Transformation, featuring:

Monica Haslip, founder of Little Black Pearl in Bronzeville and a national trainer of racial healing circle practitioners for the Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) initiative

Robin Rue Simmons, Alderman of Evanston's 5th Ward and Chair of the Reparations Committee of the City of Evanston

Rev. Michael C. Nabors (moderator), President of the Evanston North Shore Branch of the NAACP and Senior Pastor at Second Baptist Church, Evanston

Our guests will discuss:

  • How can Racial Healing Circles impact a community in ways that lead to change?
  • What's the role of the individual, and of the collective, in supporting Reparations initiatives?
  • What do we need to know/do to be change agents?

There will be some time for Q and A as well. This event is free, but requires registration. Please join us!

Note: Zoom link will be provided upon registration.

This event is funded in part by a grant from Healing Illinois, a statewide initiative of the Illinois Department of Human Services in partnership with Chicago Community Trust.

Panel members: Monica Haslip, Robin Rue Simmons, and Rev. Michael C. Nabors
