The Graduate School of Social Work will host Dr. David Ragland, co-founder and co-executive director of the Truth Telling Project and the director of the Grassroots Reparations Campaign. Dr. Ragland will explore issues regarding progressive politics, reparations, and the systemic changes needed to enact them in the United States and the world at large. His conversation will provide a deep dive into reparations as a spiritual and healing practice that responds to gross abuses against human rights. In this historical moment, the entire nation and world is grappling with what accountability looks like, the urgent need to support those to tell their truths and repair the harm the truth reveals. Dr. Ragland will discuss H.R. 40 and its path to restorative justice, and the work to create a culture of reparations.
The webinar is free and open to all. This event will not be recorded.
