The history of the land that we call the United States is built on genocide, slavery, colonialism, and white supremacy. With that as the foundation, and navigating the variety of lived experiences of these truths, this year Center for Whole Communities (CWC) convened 21 leaders from across the country for a year of learning and transformation. Together, we have considered what it means to live, work and breathe justice as we wrestle with that legacy and our own responsibility for transforming it.
