The issue of reparations has gained considerable momentum in both public conversation and municipalities across the country. Evanston, IL. passed reparations legislation, and public support for reparations is increasing. However, many define reparations narrowly – as cash payments, relegated to the public sector, and only benefitting Black people. We are on a mission to change this.
Liberation Ventures, with support from PolicyLink, is broadening and normalizing the issue of reparations. Put simply, reparations for slavery and its legacy are not just about money, or policy; reparations is comprehensive repair, and requires shifting narratives and ultimately culture. We believe that building a culture of repair across sectors benefits not just Black people, but catalyzes a true multiracial democracy – for all of us.
Join this session to workshop Liberation Ventures’ living framework for racial repair, give us your feedback, and learn about how you can apply it to your organization and the change you are seeking in the world.
