Racial Truth and Reconciliation Week (RTRW)
August 22 – 27, 2022
“Racial Truth & Reconciliation (RTR) Virginia (RTRVA) is an intentional evolution of the Campaign for a Trauma-Informed Virginia that further concentrates our efforts on the intersection of trauma and equity. This community-led initiative catalyzed by Voices for Virginia’s Children empowers advocates with lived experience to ignite the change they wish to see in their communities.
The mission of RTRW is to empower the voices and experiences of marginalized communities in acknowledgement of truth to promote healing, reconciliation, and justice. Since its inception in 2020, this week has been a time to reflect on personal and organizational growth related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. This year, we celebrate good troublemaking and young changemakers. We invite attendees to look towards what will sustain and further the progress that has been made, while encouraging continued growth and transformation, personally and professionally.”
