Visual representation of the Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Framework

The TRHT Framework is a visual representation of the theory of change that guides all TRHT initiatives. The heart of the framework is relational healing and relationship building. The ongoing practice of cultivating trusting relationships provides a foundation through which all other elements of systemic change become possible in each of the areas outlined on the framework. 

This framework outlines numerous areas where change is both needed and possible when relationships are strengthened, including:

  • narrative changes about cultural groups throughout media and cultural platforms
  • the many components of the criminal legal system and laws and policies more broadly
  • all aspects of the economy, including labor relations, patterns of human migration, wealth distribution, etc.
  • the myriad ways that separation is perpetuated through disparities in access to health care, housing, education, etc.
