Unlearning Racism

There is a hunger to discuss race as well as the legacy and current manifestations of racism in our community. For the past 20 years, the Madison Institutes for the Healing of Racism have worked to create a safe space for people to examine the content of their own hearts and minds around issues of race and racism.

The mission of the Madison Wisconsin Institutes for the Healing of Racism, Inc. is to raise consciousness about the history and pathology of racism and help heal racism in individuals, communities and institutions within the Greater Madison area and all over the US. The Institute plans to work cooperatively with other efforts in Madison and with other groups and Institutes for the Healing of Racism throughout the U.S. and the world. The Institute’s steering committee initiates and leads efforts that help the Institute fulfill its mission, working collaboratively with all members.
