A five-year, $75 million initiative called “America Healing” was launched by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation on May 11, promoting racial equity by addressing the effects of structural racism on communities.
The initiative provides grants to 119 organizations from 29 states (and the District of Columbia), aiming to support community-based efforts to expand opportunities for children, youth, and their communities affected by racism.
“We have an opportunity to make dramatic progress in healing our nation,” Vice President Gail Christopher said in a press release. “As a country, just as we have done in previous periods in our nation’s history, we must shine a light on racism so that we can put its effects on children and communities behind us.”
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation was established in 1930. Its focus is to support children, families, and communities. ♦
