Eric Jackson on Reparations, Reparatory Justice & Community Land Trusts
Join us for this critical conversation focused on reparatory justice and race relations within intentional communities.
Eric Jackson, of the Black Yield Institute, will discuss reparations as it pertains to land during this 90-min webinar. Together, we will explore how community land trusts (CLTs) can help retain existing lands with Black ownership and transition more land into Black hands. We’ll also learn how CLTs can support and engage in obligatory reparations.
Key outcomes of this session:
- Acquire an introductory understanding of the concepts of reparations and reparatory justice
- Explore historic and contemporary examples of issuances of reparations at various social spheres
- Explore perspectives on the necessity of reparations for equality, equity, and justice in society
- Engage questions of the utility of community land trusts as a tool for power building
