ACC Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Center: Welcome

Truth, Racial Healing, Transformation, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at ACC and throughout Central Texas


ACC TRHT Vision Statement

Austin Community College (ACC) envisions a community where race, ethnicity, and other human differences are no longer predictors of success and well-being in any sector. The TRHT Campus Center will 1) be the community nexus for developing cross-racial relationship-building opportunities; 2) provide spaces for ongoing interactive learning experiences to promote the healing of wounds caused and exacerbated by racism;  3) promote healing through facilitated dialogues to excavate the history of racism and its current predictable impact on individuals and groups; 4) engage and convene communities to focus on assets, promote self-advocacy, and leverage partnerships to promote racial equity in systems; and 5) support institutional capacity-building through leadership development for accountability for racial equity.

  If we are to have peace on earth...



"I appeal to all of you to get into this great revolution that is sweeping this nation.  Get in and stay in the streets of every city, every village and hamlet of this nation until true freedom comes, until the revolution of 1776 is complete."

~John Lewis, at the 1963 March on Washington

"Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble."

~John Lewis, 2018


“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

– Barack Obama




“Racism is man’s gravest threat to man – the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.”

~Abraham Joshua Heschel

 Rabbi, Jewish theologian and philospher


"Hating people because of their color is wrong and it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just wrong.”

~Muhammad Ali
