Stopping Stones: Memorials for Racial Healing Executive Director
Remote August 14, 2023
Stopping Stones Memorials are a tool to promote racial healing. Inspired by more than one hundred thousand Stolpersteine installed in Europe and elsewhere to remember victims of the Nazi regime, Stopping Stones memorials are being installed in the United States to recognize that the history of slavery still lies at the root of racism today. The engraved names and occupations hand-embossed on brass plaques are placed at or near places where they were held. They are a visual presence created to honor individuals enslaved in early America whose names and lives have largely been erased.
Stopping Stones seeks a visionary, achievement-focused entrepreneur as its inaugural Executive Director to build multi-racial and multi-cultural relationships across the country and develop resources to support communities with action to repair the echoes of slavery.
