Discord and Despair in America

It is a difficult time for us right now in America. As we struggle with the discord and despair brought by recent violence across the country, we are left with questions. How we will find a way to move forward from this time of crisis? How can we better relations between communities and law enforcement?

What is being done to foster more dialogue about racial justice?

The Kresge Foundation, led by President and CEO Rip Rapson, is proud to join philanthropic leaders in a national campaign that highlights America’s reasons for hope. The campaign, which has had huge success on social media and in newspapers, has helped open up a conversation with America that many are using as an opportunity to facilitate the healing process within our communities.
