In light of the murder of 18 year old Michael Brown Jr in August 2014, the surrounding protests, and the anger it generated throughout the community, St. Louis has become the epicenter for addressing structural change, direct violence, police relationships and racism in our community and throughout the United States.

The Truth Telling Project’s vision for the future is a just, equitable, and sustainable society free of state-sanctioned violence and systemic racism.

To move us toward our vision, we implement and sustain grassroots, community-centered truth-telling processes to amplify our voices about police violence and its roots.  We foster coalition-building and solidarity with the most vulnerable communities. We educate ourselves and our allies about systemic violence throughout the United States. We support reparative and restorative justice as the primary pathways for structural transformation.

We are a not-for-profit organization under the sponsorship of the NEIU Foundation.


It’s Time to Listen

The Truth Telling Commons is an open-source educational resource highlighting the voices directly and indirectly affected by systematic and racialized violence. Learn how lived experiences express the harms of institutional racism. Begin the process of action under the leadership of black folk and people of color on the front lines as we all work together for liberation.
