WHAT is STAR?
Dedicated Nonprofit Promoting Best Practices for Restorative Justice**
Southern Truth and Reconciliation welcomes today's challenges and opportunities to promote reconciliation, equity and social change where a legacy of racial violence continues to impair community relations, undermine fairness and honor, and complicate civic affairs.
We believe that leaders who create positive, memorable, and affirmative connections between past and present are more likely to leverage their community's legacy and reclaim its future.
Our approach to social justice seeks to restore all stakeholders to full participation in community building through truth-telling and trustbuilding.
