Key takeaways from On the Table MKE discussions

Economic Repair and Reparations

  • Just as inequity has been legislated for centuries, use reparations as a means to legislate toward equity long term, with investment over generations
  • Since communities of color experience economic oppression differently, apply disaggregated data to inform thoughtful approaches to reparations that scale progressively with generational experience
  • Acknowledge monetary forms of reparations are a starting point but insufficient in isolation, as income and wealth are distinct
