About FOUNDATION FOR INTER ETHNIC RESTORATION
PO Box 429, Smyrna, GA 30081, US
FIER is a non-profit 501c(4) dedicated to providing a safe space for different ethnic communities to collectively and individually address racial trauma, foster inclusive discussions about how it impacts their life and analyze what steps can be taken to begin healing that trauma in themselves and within society. Our goal is to serve as a central hub that brings all existing resources together in order to offer educational material about racial literacy, information to foster inter-ethnic solidarity, and access to a network of professionals dedicated to talking about racial trauma in a cathartic and constructive way. We also offer counseling to people who have experienced racism/hate crimes/discrimination. Ultimately, we'd like to educate the public about racial trauma and help ethnic communities discover that, in the words of Bobby Kennedy, "what unites us is greater than what divides us." Our goal is to alleviate the racial tension across communities.
The Foundation for Inter-Ethnic Restoration was founded amidst the worldwide uproar stemming from COVID-19 xenophobia and the demise of George Floyd that brought life, as we knew it, to a sobering halt revealing the underlying tension that had been prevalent within American society for generations. Over the years, systematic and institutionalized racism has produced numerous incidences of hate crimes and police brutality which has been largely ignored, minimized, denied and invalidated. However, the harsh reality is that minority communities were on the edge of a surreal precipice long before the year 2020.
Consequently, countless minority communities have been struggling with the multi-pronged effects of systemic racism and have suffered tremendously. Research suggests that the effects of recurring experiences with racial trauma can include a reshaping of individuals’ perceptions of themselves, psychological distress, and even suicidal ideation (O’Keefe, Wingate, Cole, Hollingsworth, & Tucker, 2015; Williams, Neighbors, & Jackson, 2003).
Thus, racism in any form, whether it be at the hands of a stranger, a boss, or even an institution, is clearly harmful to one’s mental and physical health and requires concerted actions designed to foster restoration and improvement of one’s quality of life. F.I.E.R., in collaboration with various professionals and mental health experts will attempt to fill the gap by facilitating safe environments for cathartic discussions.
