In 1989, an ethnically diverse group of individuals met in Houston, Texas, to discuss the impact of racism. The emphasis was on personal growth, healing, and the exploration of ways to heal racism. The group focused on the principle that racism violates the oneness of humanity. This group began to develop weekend workshops, including our “Dialogue” Racism workshop, to inform and overcome racial tensions and prejudices.
The Center for Healing Racism is a grassroots organization. As our group started to grow and the members became more involved in studying and equipping themselves with the knowledge and skills necessary to reach out to the wider community, the scope of our project became bigger. Our Articles of Incorporation were approved by the State of Texas on November 17, 1992. A board of directors governs the organization and experienced directors manage its programs.
Our non-profit organization based in Houston, Texas is dedicated to the healing of racism through education and empowerment . As the 21st century progresses, our organization is working to bring people of all ethnicities together to heal from the damage of racism.

Our Core Beliefs
The Center for Healing Racism believes that the human race is essentially one and that racism is a learned behavior that can be unlearned. It is our goal to open up a dialogue that will educate people, which is one of the most powerful tools to fight prejudice. By working together, we can heal racism and bring positivity and empowerment to every race.
