Reparations is not charity. We believe that this is our duty as citizens of empire, and for veterans in particular as soldiers of empire. Contributing money is one way that we all can redistribute wealth and privilege to communities that our society has hurt. You can do so here.
But we also invite you to make the process of repair a lifestyle, an ongoing effort to be aware of one’s impact on the world around them and heal any wounds we might inflict. Feel free to check out our projects and get involved with the organizing and logistical work. In the process of this work, you’ll get to know the communities that we’re serving.
After all, reparations should be personal. We want you to know the faces and names of the people we’re paying reparations to. We want you to build a relationship with them. In this globalized world, we need to begin to feel invested in one another’s well being.
