Alliance for Truth and Racial Reconciliation The Alliance for Truth and Racial Reconciliation (ATRR) promotes truth-seeking and reconciliation on issues of racial violence by deepening our understanding of history and its continuing effects and by working for justice. As an alliance of concerned individuals and committed local organizations, we seek to address the concerns of healing, accountability, reparations, restorative justice, and coalition-building. By working collaboratively, we support and promote efforts by individuals and local groups to build bridges and create community, through hearings, conferences, community-based initiatives, dialogue-building sessions, forums, and projects, as well as supporting national legislation and initiatives consistent with these efforts to strengthen the social, economic, political, and environmental fabric of the United States.

Facing History and Ourselves is based in Brookline, MA, with several regional offices, including one in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Mississippi Truth Project is a statewide effort to create a truth and reconciliation commission that will bring to light racially motivated crimes and injustices committed in Mississippi between 1945 and 1975.
