Member Call: First Repair: Municipal and Philanthropic Collaboration towards Local Reparations 

This Member Call will highlight Evanston’s process for philanthropic organizations to identify the right stakeholders and build a reparations movement at the local or national level.

Event Details

Reparations to identify and address the injuries to the Black community that have created the inequities in society are necessary on the local level, as well as on the federal level. Evanston, IL, has been a leader in this work with former Alderman Robin Rue Simmons, the commitment of the city government, and a deep collaboration with the Evanston Community Foundation. This Member Call will highlight Evanston’s process for philanthropic organizations to identify the right stakeholders and build a reparations movement at the local or national level.

This Member Call will include breakout rooms and time for full group discussion where you will have the chance to talk with GEO member peers about the different opportunities and challenges related to funding reparations. Participants should expect to reflect on meaningful stakeholder engagement and get curious about identifying appropriate remedies to anti-Black practices.

Start: Tuesday, October 18, 2:00 PM Eastern

End: Tuesday, October 18, 3:30 PM Eastern
