Together We Heal: Candid Conversations series

The Together We Heal Initiative invites local healers, neighbors and faith leaders to talk about community-level healing in its four-part Candid Conversation series. These unmoderated virtual conversations encourage open and honest discussion about Chicago, healing, and racial equity. As invited guests, participants are asked to weigh in with peers on a series of questions exploring community, collective healing and its impact across our city.
