OUR GOAL FOR SLAVEREPARATIONS.ORG

OUR GOAL
The goal of slavereparations.org  is to establish a nonprofit organization to explore the issue of slavery reparations in America.  We want to create an opportunity for all people of goodwill to finally have a long-needed national public conversation about reparations.   Please join us in this effort to challenge our assumptions, beliefs, and expectations about reparations.

WHY THIS IS NEEDED
We all long to heal the scars of racial bondage and repair the legacy of slavery in the United States. Reparations are an important issue needing honest compassionate engagement by all people seeking to resolve a difficult longstanding problem in our society.  Many strongly feel the US needs to make up for its past history of slavery.  People of goodwill are defined not by commonly agreed on answers but by important questions.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT
We understand reparations cannot change the past but they can certainly affect the present. There remain today many examples of cultural and economic racial divisions in America. People of honest intent recognize wide gaps still exist today in economics, crime, education, and personal security.

HOW IT CAN CHANGE
There are many current actions that would go a long way toward overcoming America‚Äôs legacy and would benefit African Americans in substantial ways. Those actions include criminal-justice reform, job training, college scholarships, and inner-city K-12 education reforms.  

Reparations can be a recognition we are not where we can and should be as a society of believers in equal opportunities for all. Better job training, educational opportunities, and increased school choices for poor African-Americans would be transformative steps toward the equal opportunity promised by our founders.  

WHAT WE CAN DO
We desire to move beyond questions of past slave-holders and slavery victims. Our moral intuitions recognize past oppressors and victims However,  there is a current insistent and obvious need for reconciliation actions. America needs to have a responsible public conversation about reparations.  This is your invitation to help us create a national non-profit non-partisan organization that focuses on equal opportunities for all.

Our organization will challenge society to think outside of conventional cultural responses to the idea of slavery reparations. It will ask why we still have a society with major cultural divides that exist along racial lines and how we can bridge those divides and find solutions. We will focus on how we can best bring the promise of equal opportunity to all of our citizens.

We have listed below several goals we hope to meet with your help. Every long journey starts with a single step.
