Reparations: How Are We Doing It?

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can we move the discussion of reparations beyond making the case for it and being angry at those who do not agree?

We will develop a broad understanding of why development is key and multiple approaches to engaging in this work now. Participants will leave with ideas of how to fund work in communities that we can initiate to repair the damage of slavery and exploitation.
