The Healing Racism Institute of Pioneer Valley serves as a catalyst to overcome the impact of racism, and advance the community and the region’s diverse population. The Institute’s signature program is its two-day Healing Racism sessions, which provide a safe environment to learn about the impact of racism on our nation and community in a process that is engaging and transformative. I was joined by the institute’s Director, Waleska Lugo-DeJesús, recently when she elaborated upon their mission and successes.
