A Conversation: Reparations as Community Wealth Building
The extraction and brutal exploitation of black and indigenous people was a feat of social engineering, a project that took centuries to unfold and centuries to dismantle. As these systems of radicalized oppression are drawing to an end, we have the opportunity to reengineer long- term, sustainable processes of repair, while transferring wealth and power in ways that not only regenerate individuals but our larger ecological community as well. This event will gather repairationists and community wealth builders from Denver to share the innovative models that are ushering in the era of great healing and restoration. This conversation is led by Asia Dorsey.
