Member Education Sessions: Regarding Reparations

1:00pm-2:30pm EST

Event Description

Communities of color understand the enduring impact of colonization, which continues to present itself to this day. There’s a growing call for solidarity between Black and Indigenous peoples, rooted in the shared historical injustices inflicted upon each of our ancestors. Today’s social justice movements require collaboration and space to stand together in demanding acknowledgment and redress. Reparations are one key solution. Indigenous and Black reparations cannot be mutually exclusive. They must be crafted and achieved together to ensure that systemic change is equitable and achievable for everyone involved. 

In celebration of the liberation of Juneteenth, ABFE and Native Americans in Philanthropy came together to discuss the next steps Regarding Reparations and the role of philanthropy in this endeavor. The panel for the session included Dr. Dana Arviso of the Common Counsel Foundation, Dr. Amber Banks of the Decolonizing Wealth Project, and Temi F. Bennett, Esq. of iF Foundation. Whether you're new to this conversation or deeply engaged in its nuances, we invite you to stand with us in solidarity as we center the power of each community respectively and the sheer force of both combined.
