Native Americans in Philanthropy – Member Education Session: Regarding Reparations

Join DWP’s VP of Programs, Dr. Amber Banks for this important conversation!

Communities of color understand the enduring impact of colonization, which continues to present itself to this day. There’s a growing call for solidarity between Black and Indigenous peoples, rooted in the shared historical injustices inflicted upon each of our ancestors. Today’s social justice movements require collaboration and space to stand together in demanding acknowledgment and redress. Reparations are one key solution. Indigenous and Black reparations cannot be mutually exclusive. They must be crafted and achieved together to ensure that systemic change is equitable and achievable for everyone involved.

In celebration of the liberation of Juneteenth, let’s come together on Tuesday, June 18 at 1:00 pm ET to discuss the next steps Regarding Reparations and the role of philanthropy in this endeavor. Moderated by Bobby “Trae” Trousdale (Citizen Potawatomi Nation) of Native Americans in Philanthropy, we are honored to welcome Dr. Dana Arviso (Navajo) of the Common Counsel Foundation, Dr. Amber Banks of the Decolonizing Wealth Project, and Temi F. Bennett, Esq. of the iF Foundation. Whether you’re new to this conversation or deeply engaged in its nuances, we invite you to stand with us in solidarity as we center the power of each community respectively and the sheer force of both combined.
