Center for the Healing of Racism Through Education and Dialogue

At the heart of our society lies the potential for unity, understanding, and compassion; yet, racism remains a barrier that divides communities and hinders the realization of our collective potential. We’re dedicated to healing from racism through education and dialogue. Our mission is to create a world where everyone is valued, and racism no longer dictates the quality of one’s life experiences.

Who We Are

Mobile Healing

Healing center washington

We champion the vision of a united community where every person can thrive free from racial prejudice. Since 1989, our mission has been steadfast: to disrupt the cycle of racism by addressing how racism is transmitted in society and fostering healing through impactful education and dialogue.

We acknowledge that racism is a pervasive ailment with deep roots in our society. It is transmitted through systems, institutions, and interpersonal relations, often inadvertently perpetuating the cycle of hurt. At our center, healing is not just an act but a journey. Our purpose is to mend the wounds caused by racism by empowering individuals to identify and challenge racial biases within themselves and their communities.

The Center for the Healing of Racism holds compassionate human centered workshops. Cherry is a dedicated and thoughtful leader that genuinely cares about each individual's experience. I recommend their workshops, especially to those newer to the conversation of racism

Heather Marie Scholl, Confront White Womanhood

I would like to express our deepest gratitude to you for a great workshop yesterday. Many students and faculty found the workshop very enriching and many more who weren't able to attend are asking for the recording just because of the great feedback from those who attended. I sincerely appreciate you both for doing this. This was much needed especially given our current racial climate.

Gilbert, Student National Dental Association, Colorado

I recently attended the session on White Privilege at the Center for the Healing of Racism and really enjoyed the presentation and the people I met there. The presentation and personal sharing were very educational, thought provoking and helpful to my life. I highly recommend their programs.


Thank you for the opportunity to co-facilitate last night's event. I left there feeling excited about the difference we made in the lives of those who had attended. I would not have expected the outcome to be what it was as the participants shared their feelings. I was in shock! A good shock. Thank you for the continued opportunities


I was so grateful to share space and dialogue with a group of people all interested in learning about experiences different from their own, making room for empathy, and taking action to begin healing. Racism is something that is in action in every piece of our society and in all of our lives every day. It was such an important step for me to take this chance to move outside of my comfort zone and be honest about my lived experience, reflect on the impact of my actions and my prejudices, whether consciously or subconsciously enacted, and take this knowledge out into my community to enact change.


I was one of the ones that went to the seminar on Saturday. It was awesome( I feel like that is too mild of a word)!!! It really changed my view on a few things. I have to admit that I really enjoyed myself and cant wait until this coming Saturday to complete part two. It was my idea not to let the ones that didnt come for part one, not to come to part two!! Like you stated, to grasp the entire concept, you have to attend both!! Met and conversed with awesome people!! I am glad I went!! Thank you!!

Dialogue Racism

We firmly believe in overcoming racism with dialogue. Dialogue lies at the heart of all our programs. Through the power of shared stories, experiences, and open discussions, we can break down the barriers of racism that divide us. We encourage personal growth and communal healing by providing a safe space where every voice is heard and valued.

A safe space for dialogue, and moving toward healing… for all of us.
