You're invited to celebrate our seventh annual National Day of Racial Healing on January 17, 2023. Here are a few ways communities can join in:

- Tune in for the National Day of Racial Healing primetime town halls, airing across MSNBC and Noticias Telemundo platforms.
- In your community: host a meal in your home, plan a neighbor walk, host a gathering at your place of worship, or reserve space at your favorite coffee shop.

Racial healing occurs in the simple everyday activities you are already doing. Start the conversation with your neighbors, friends, and families. The world is changing, little by little, hour by hour. http://wkkf.co/m50k
