Aiming for Justice: Race, Reparations, and Right Paths
While many dialogues on race tend to focus on the feelings and comfort of participants regarding a troubled past, very few workshops ask participants to contemplate the material benefits of that past. This workshop asks participants to lean into discomfort, to be reflexive, acknowledge the material benefits they have reaped and imagine what material justice might entail. The first full day will challenge participants to consider the distinction between justice-oriented giving and philanthropy. Day two will explore the opportunity costs of saving for retirement. Day three will examine how inheritance feeds into the continuation of a racial wealth gap. Participants will leave with an action plan and an accountability partner as part of an emerging community of people enacting race-based economic justice with care and transparency. White recipients of inherited forms of wealth are particularly encouraged to register.
