Black Massacre Project Executive Director, Kenya Tyson, will join Legal Services of New Jersey for a panel on reparations. As a part of their Next Justice series, Legal Services of New Jersey will gather a national panel of experts to talk about systemic racism and the history, policies, and practices that have historically disadvantaged Black people, as well as the increasingly urgent need for reparations.
Attendees will learn about New Jersey’s campaign for reparations, California’s new law creating a task force to explore reparations, and reparations in the context of historical Black massacres. They will also explore how reparations fit into the larger context of advocacy for civil legal assistance, social justice, and the fight against poverty.
The virtual panel discussion, which is free and open to the public, will take place Monday September 13th, at noon. Click on the event flyer to learn more about the workshop.
