The first in a series of discussions focused on reparations, what it means, and what it could look like in New Haven. The series will consist of quarterly conversations that will begin in an online format and open up to a public forum that engages New Haven residents between June 2021 and June 2022. These conversations are designed to consider more deeply the various ways in which we can promote engagement and empowerment in the Black community through the work of reparative justice.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Philip A. Goff, professor of African American Studies and Psychology at Yale University, he will be joined by a panel of six community leaders who represent the intentional focus areas of repair and reform in New Haven. This event will be moderated for content, context, and time.
