The Culture of Health Leaders Institute for Racial Healing Names Mahoganee Amiger to its Third Cohort of National Leaders

June 11, 2024 – The Culture of Health Leaders Institute for Racial Healing (CoHLI), a program of the National Collaborative for Health Equity, selected Mahoganee Amiger, Gullah/Geechee Ambassador, Multidisciplinary State-Certified Teaching Artist, Recording Artist, Performing Artist, Songwriter, Sound Healer of Responsible ARTistry, Inc., and The Mahoganee Xperience, LLC who lives on St. Helena Island, SC. to its third cohort.

CoHLI is an 18-month leadership experience that uses the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation™ Framework (TRHT ™) to strengthen the ecosystem of leaders who are advancing racial and health equity in their work. TRHT is an actionable model designed to bring about transformational and sustainable change that addresses the historic and contemporary effects of racism. Using the framework, leaders will focus work in one of five areas: narrative change, racial healing and relationship building, separation, law, and the economy.

Mahoganee Amiger joins thirty-nine other talented leaders from 20 different states around the country as part of this cohort, and the 80 other leaders from the first and second cohorts. After a competitive selection process beginning in early 2024, individuals were selected for their leadership experiences in the policy, law, grassroots organizations, education, the arts, cultural preservation, criminal justice reform, economics, environmental/climate justice, technology, public health, and healthcare fields. 

They embody the essence of the TRHT framework, a powerful tool aimed at driving lasting change in addressing racism's deep-rooted effects. These remarkable individuals represent the five pillars of the TRHT framework: 

  1. Narrative Change
  2. Racial Healing & Relationship Building
  3. Separation
  4. Law
  5. Economy

Together they are set to make a significant impact and pave the way for a more equitable future. Let’s celebrate their dedication and commitment to creating positive change. 🌍✨Learn more about these impactful leaders and the CoHLI experience: #RacialEquity #HealthEquity #TRHTFramework
