Flozell Daniels, Jr. kicks off Tulane's Health, Racism, and Communication Seminar Series

Lousiana’s

The topic, "Investing in Justice: Truth-telling, Racial Healing and Transformation," allowed FFL's president and CEO to give a preview of our Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation work

FFL President and CEO Flozell Daniels, Jr. opened Tulane University’s Fall 2017 Health, Racism, and Communication Seminar Series with his presentation “Investing in Justice: Truth Telling, Racial Healing and Transformation” on Thursday (Sept. 14) at the Tulane School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine.

Daniels explained how FFL’s work tries to address Louisiana’s nation-leading racial disparities and how they impact on everything from mass incarceration and affordable housing to limited access to good-paying jobs and even challenges along our coastline.

Such challenges, Daniels argued, present unique opportunities for leading across the state and nation to embrace the healing potential of racial reconciliation and justice-centered action. He noted the recent historic justice reinvestment legislation passed after his work as the governor’s designee on a bipartisan task force. The presentation also gave Daniels the opportunity to explain FFL’s recent launch of the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) framework in Baton Rouge and New Orleans thanks to its collaboration with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Daniels is an alumnus of Tulane, where he once served as Tulane’s Assistant Vice-President & Executive Director of State and Local Affairs for nine years before joining what is now FFL.
