Join the Racial Healing Project
The Racial Healing Project is a joint program operated by the Baha’is of Placer County, California, and sponsored by Global Marketplace, a non-profit advocate for economic justice. We call this the Racial Healing Project because we believe racism is a disease and we all need to heal.
The Baha’i Faith is a worldwide religion dedicated to the unity of all humankind. To achieve this goal we need to eliminate prejudice of all kinds. At the top of this list is prejudice against a person’s race.
Global Marketplace is dedicated to achieving economic justice for everyone. Prejudice (and in particular racism) is one of the principle reasons many people cannot get a good education and then find productive work.
Our Racial Healing Project consists of three programs. We welcome your participation in each program:
- Conversations on Racial Healing – A Safe Place to Talk about Race.
In this program, people of all races meet twice a month at the Sisters of Mercy Conference Center in Auburn, California, to talk about race. Two facilitators lead the group, using materials based on the book “Racial Healing: The Institutes for the Healing of Racism.” We are planning more discussion groups in Rocklin and other Placer County locations soon.

2. Posting stories of racial healing on social media including Facebook and also on this website’s blog. For more information about this program click on the link at the top of this page – Like Us, Follow Us
