Reparations Committee

Reparations-Inspired Action

Assembly’s initiative for reparations-inspired action was adopted in October 2022.  It is a commitment to pay on the debt owed in the U.S. for the harm inflicted on African Americans and Indigenous Peoples since before the nation’s founding.  This harm stems from a culture of White Supremacy, where the bodies, labors, and histories of Black and Indigenous Peoples were stolen and used for the benefit of White Americans.

For more information on Assembly’s commitment and the thinking behind it, you can read the text of our Peace Lamp from Sept 24, 2023 and our reparations-inspired initiative.
