Jan. 16 - Truth Telling as Healing


The School District of Onalaska is hosting an online presentation from 1 to 3 p.m. on Monday, January 16, Martin Luther King Jr Day, that is free and open to all.

The program will be presented by Nurturing Diversity Partners

We believe our country is currently experiencing a uniquely “teachable time” in its journey towards realizing its founding ideals of liberty and justice for all.

Reggie Jackson & Dr. Fran Kaplan formed Nurturing Diversity Partners to advance and support that journey by using methods they’ve honed over many years to build bridges from our past to our future across racial/ethnic, urban/suburban/rural, generational, and other divides.

Fran & Reggie have been doing this type of work together for over a decade. Reggie is a sought-after speaker, researcher, and writer, with a deep, comprehensive knowledge of how our country’s racial hierarchy developed historically and its impact on our lives today. Dr. Fran has spent fifty-five years working against poverty and for social justice and peace locally, nationally, and internationally. A social change “entrepreneur,” she has founded and led multiple organizations. You can learn more about Fran and Reggie here.

We look forward to partnering with organizations and individuals who seek to join the journey toward equity and build bridges together.
