Between the desperate need for racial justice with #BlackLivesMatter, the fight against Covid-19 disproportionately impacting people of color, large scale unemployment, and the rise in gun violence all give new and equal importance to the need for a National Day of Healing.
Each of us is going through some of the worst experiences of our lives - in some ways similar, and in others ways, very different. Make no mistake, the stress is equally extreme and unpredictable. National Day of Healing will take place on Juneteenth, or June 19th, 2020, to help the nation come together in these trying times.
LIFE Camp Founder Erica Ford is dedicated to transforming urban communities. Ford is among the founders and leaders of the National Day of Healing, and shared why she is behind the cause:
"We started the call for the National Day of Healing during the Covid pandemic, and with the death of so many black and brown patriarchs and matriarchs, and the impact of employment and young people not being able to graduate, we thought it was important to give people a space to be able to heal."
