Why Rx Racial Healing
TEDx Talk on Why Rx Racial Healing by Dr. Gail C. Christopher
Watch Rx Racial Healing founder, Dr. Gail C. Christopher on TedX sharing why this work is vital for the health of our nation.
Why Rx Racial Healing?
Racism persists in our nation largely due to our failure to disavow the embedded belief in a hierarchy of human value. This belief and the systems and public policies it has generated have caused centuries of harmful discrimination. Today, growing inequality and dramatic demographic changes demand that we create enduring racial equity in order to maintain our political and economic strength and the integrity of our democracy. Going beyond treating the symptoms of racism, Rx Racial Healing methodology works to eradicate the belief in racial hierarchy altogether. Through this work, RxRH advocates for implementing long-term policies that recognize the interconnectedness of racial equity in housing, education, health, and economic opportunity and that lead inexorably toward enduring national well-being.
Our vision is to set this nation on an irreversible path toward racial healing and racial equity. A majority of children today are children of color. They, and all of us, deserve to live in a society that has jettisoned the belief in a hierarchy of human value—a society free of racism. Polls indicate that most Americans believe that race relations are getting worse. Diversity is increasing while our civility is waning. Yet, most Americans also believe that we must find ways to overcome our divisions.
The Rx Racial Healing mission is to generate a critical mass of people committed to working together to end racism and the inequities it has created.
Architect and systems thinker Buckminster Fuller said:
“You never change things by fighting the existing model. You must create a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
We represent such a model. We will help people to tap into a new sense of shared humanity and to envision and create a future in which our society is transformed and all, especially our children, can thrive.
