Support for Reparations

These are comments from the local and global community answering the question:
Why is reparations (for slavery in the U.S.) important to you?

August 2019

Ongoing, voluntary, individual and institutional reparations is an opportunity:

  • to accept responsibility for past and present crimes of systemic racial violence, terror, & economic exploitation;
  • to inspire peaceful, contagious structural change;
  • to liberate us from complicity; and
  • to heal the heart and soul of the nation &  our precious planet.

It is time to make amends in ways that matter. There is the need for reparations to the descendants of the Native American First Nation people who were eliminated in large numbers via genocide, who were enslaved and whose land was stolen from them-land that they lived on in harmony with nature . . .
