If there are questions in the audience - feel free to type them in the chat and we will try to get to it
I have missed a large part of this meeting. I am a Quaker who is part of a reparations effort among Quakers. My pastor is paying me on a weekly basis as part of her reparations.
Do you think a ceremony around acknowledgment similar to what was done regarding the Japanese internment is necessary for us to move forward?
Can you imagine full repair and what does it look like to you?
Mama Yeye says we must look at another culture and say ‘we are one’...idk.....the Asili teaches us that people of European descent have no rhythm or comraderie with the Earth, setting them apart from people of African descent. should we expect the possibility of redemption of the opressors? Can they experience transformation?
To Luisha Teish , how do we address working with groups and organizations that outwardly focus on certain principles like justice, healing harmony and reparations yet internally working with each other we contradict those principles.
That was awesome!!!
i hear you Sandra Plummer.
All of what is said is needed. Law, justice, ritual, reparations, etc. etc.. 5 points WE all have to heal our souls, our beings and act too.
The US political right replaced “e pluribus unum” (out of many, one) with “One nation under God” (i.e. anti-godless communism) in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Now the political right has replaced our nation’s motto again with “I’ve got mine, screw you.” How do we put the good of the community above the immediate material self-interest of powerful individuals?
The “Me” above is Duane Cady. For reasons unbeknownst to me, my name doesn’t connect to my chat.
I have another meeting now. Many thanks for a wonderful discussion about the meanings of reparations; so informative and inspiring
