Adelphi University Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Campus Center (TRHT) invites all students to join an in-person conversation as a participant in an Rx Racial Healing Circle™.


The circles are designed for participants to share lived experiences by sharing narratives, to broaden the understanding of diverse experiences among people. Launched by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation &trade (TRHT) effort seeks to help communities embrace racial healing and eliminate conscious and unconscious beliefs in a hierarchy of human value. The TRHT effort promotes inclusive and community-based healing activities and policy designs that seek to change community narratives and broaden the understanding of diverse experiences among people.
