Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice to host virtual panel on reparations

Posted

The Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice and the YWCA-DE Racial and Social Justice Program will present a panel discussion on reparations at its virtual town hall meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 13.

In common usage, the term “reparations” refers to the act or process of making amends for a wrong. According to the United Nations, adequate, effective, and prompt reparation is intended to promote justice by redressing gross violations of international human rights law or serious violations of international humanitarian law.

Focusing on the harm resulting from slavery in the United States, the panel discussion is a sequel to “Let’s Talk About Reparations,” a pre-recorded YWCA-DE program featuring a trio of Delaware community activists, presented at SDARJ’s November town hall meeting, which can be viewed by going to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxJUDJUkq8A.

The December meeting will take the discussion live, focusing on practical approaches to reparations and the various ways that reparations might be made. Logan Herring will discuss supporting underserved communities as a form of reparations. Dr. Marlene Saunders will discuss how a focus on the public health disparities in the Black community might be considered part of a reparations program. Lee Baker will speak about how George Washington University, a former slave holding institution, is working on the reparations question.

The audience will have opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas on the issue and to consider how to move from conversations to action. To register, visit https://sdarj.org/lets-talk-reparations-part-2/.
