On June 12 the Reparations Legacy Project of the Black-led Uhuru Movement will host a virtual conference from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (PST) to organize white people with access to financial, generational, and social wealth to pay reparations.

Under the slogan, “Repair the damage. Return the stolen wealth. Fund Black Liberation”, the conference calls on white individuals, organizations and businesses invested in social change to support Black community-led economic development and self-determination programs. This conference also challenges the massive global wealth disparities in which a small number of millionaires and billionaires hoard and control more wealth than the majority of the world’s peoples combined.

“This our way to take positive and meaningful action in the face of the rampant injustices inherent to a system born from slavery, genocide and colonialism,” said Jesse Nevel, coordinator of the Reparations Legacy Project.

Workshop topics and panels will include, “Beyond Philanthropy: How Businesses and Corporations Can Support Reparations” and “Reparations Towards Building the Independent Black Anti-Colonial Economy.” The conference will feature a keynote presentation by Omali Yeshitela, the Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party, as well as Penny Hess, author of the book Overturning the Culture of Violence and longtime reparations activist.

Registration is open for the June 12th Reparations Legacy Conference at ReparationsLegacy.org/conference.

The money raised from the Reparations Legacy Project is currently funding the Uhuru Movement’s Black Power Blueprint, a community-building initiative transforming North St. Louis, MO through economic development, renovation and political power by and for the Black working class.

“We’re building economic institutions based on the needs of the people...bringing the community together and creating our own solutions to feed, clothe and house ourselves. And having African self-determination and power over our own lives,” said Ona Zene Yeshitela, President of the African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF).
