The Truth Telling Weekend, presented by the Truth Telling Project, brought together people from across the United States to share truth, confront injustice surrounding police brutality and its underlying causes, and propose and plan for possibilities that empower communities. This weekend was an opportunity for the community to dissect the relationship between racism, poverty, police violence, and militarization and confront the devastating consequences they have on American culture, equality and progress. This weekend of story-telling, discussions, and workshops laid the foundation necessary to achieve a sustainable and accessible process of Truth and Reconciliation in our nation.  The Truth Telling Project acknowledges the necessity of change before reconciliation is possible.
