On Tuesday, January 19, the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) hosted a special edition Chats for Change session in honor of the fifth annual National Day of Racial Healing—a day set aside to share truth, deepen relationships, and build trust in order to create a more equitable and just world.

Members of the community and Mount Sinai connected through storytelling and dialogue centered on racial healing. But the stories will continue.

Each one of us has a story to tell, and we want to share yours.

From now through February, we’re collecting and sharing stories of racial healing.*  

Your stories will be part of a collective and on-going #HowWeHeal campaign.

All you have to do is turn on your camera, and tell us how you heal from the effects of racism in 30-creative-seconds (or less).

You can submit your videos here from now through Friday, February 26 at 11:59 pm EST.


*Racial healing is a process. It restores individuals and communities to wholeness, repairs the damage caused by racism, and transforms societal structures into ones that affirm the inherent value of all people. By sharing our experiences, we create a world in which we are a new force for positive change. —healourcommunities.org
