Bridging Digital Divides Initiative (Princeton University) Releases “New Interactive Map Supporting U.S. Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Movement”

From BDDI:

A new map released by the Bridging Divides Initiative (BDI) at Princeton University provides a dynamic visualization of the Truth Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) movement, a comprehensive strategy to effect transformational and sustainable change, and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism.

The resource, based on data drawn from multiple partners and an array of sources, plots three categories of information: organizations that are members of the TRHT movement; Transitional Justice initiatives undertaken by state and local governments, launched after the murder of George Floyd; and congressional districts of US Representatives who have signed on in support of H.Con.Res.19 and H.R.40 in the 117th Congress, which would create a US Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation and a commission to study reparations for African Americans respectively.

The map is created based on data and other information collected by partners including the US Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Movement; the Mary Hoch Center for Reconciliation; Think Peace Learning and Support Hub; and the Center for International Law and Policy at New England Law School.
