There’s a profound need for a renewal of values and moral norms in the United States. In order to achieve the deep national renewal that this political moment demands, transformative structures of moral growth are needed for Americans to widen their circle of concern beyond those who look, think, or act as they do. Young people should be at the forefront of this work, but there’s no existing support structure for a new generation of leaders who are finding innovative ways to cultivate human goodness in pursuit of a more just and caring society. That’s why we’re creating the Social Healing Collective.
GenZ and Millennials are currently at the forefront of political, environmental, and social justice activism, which aims at changing government policies. At the same time, a less publicized and organized network of young people are committing themselves to work as social healers -- nurturing moral growth, communal renewal, and cross-cultural understanding to spark a cultural shift that will accompany needed political change.
