WANTED: Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation external evaluator

Lousiana’s

The successful bidder will assist in the development of evaluation metrics and strategies to assess the effectiveness of the TRHT work.

Foundation for Louisiana (FFL) is seeking to contract with an individual, company or organization that would develop and assist FFL staff and its partners in developing and implementing a defined evaluation plan for the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation framework. The successful bidder will assist in the development of evaluation metrics and strategies to assess the effectiveness of the TRHT work, focusing on the TRHT process to implement the framework, collaboration amongst TRHT partners, community engagement practices, the function of the advisory committees, external communications, fundraising strategies, expected vs. achieved outcomes, FFL’s TRHT grantmaking, etc.

The foundation and its partners have long invested in addressing racial disparities in Louisiana, with an emphasis on the state’s largest two cities: Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Working with community advisory committees in each city, FFL is implementing a regional framework in partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. TRHT is a comprehensive, national and community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism. It seeks to unearth and jettison the deeply held, and often unconscious, beliefs created by racism — centrally the belief in hierarchies of human value. The TRHT framework centers on five areas. The first two — Narrative Change and Racial Healing/Relationship Building — are foundational pillars. The other three areas for related transformative investments are Separation, Law and Economy.
