The Truth Telling Project
The Truth Telling Project implements and sustains grassroot, community-centered truth-telling processes to amplify our voices about structural violence. We share stories, facilitate healing, support activist on the ground, educate, and seek justice.
Structural Violence refers to systematic ways in which social structures harm or otherwise disadvantage individuals -
it is subtle, often invisible, and often has no one specific person who can or will be held responsible.
We are a not-for-profit organization under the sponsorship of the NEIU Foundation.
