I'm sorry if you missed it, but this event already took place.

Differences of political opinion, disagreements, and personal vendettas can pull apart a community. To heal, we must dig deep into understanding, compassion, and tolerance. Everyone has the ability to make a change within him or herself which can have a profound effect on all of us.

In honor of the National Day of Racial Healing, we want you to share your aspirations for the community. The first thing we have in common: we all live in Harrison! What kind of community do you want to live in? What are some of the things that need to happen to create that kind of community? How can we work together?

We want to hear about your reflections and what it means to you. We ask you to voice your opinion on social media on 1/18/22 with hashtag #HowWeHealHearrison or stop at the Halperin Memorial Building, select a cut-out hand, and complete the following sentence.
“This is #HowWeHealHarrison” _________________________________________________
You are also welcome to write your own sentence(s) about this topic and how it affects you. Your reflections will be posted on the Library’s bulletin board. All are welcome to participate.

What is the National Day of Racial Healing?
Celebrated on Tuesday, January 18, 2022
National Day of Racial Healing was established by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) in 2017 to promote healing as a critical path for ending racial bias and creating a society in which all children can thrive. The annual outreach is part of WKKF’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) effort, a national and community-based process designed to bring transformational and sustainable change to communities while addressing the historic and contemporary effects of racism.
