Boston People's Reparations Commission

Who We Are

We at the Boston People’s Reparations Commission believe that ordinary people—activists, organizers and residents—will provide an essential role in ensuring a successful reparations process in Boston.  We can not rely on the city solely for justice.  For this reason we created a grassroots campaign that will utilize 70 "community commissioners" for the purposes of education, practice and leadership in Boston.  We continue to recruit commissioners in order to actualize people power that challenges institutional powers that seek to solely organize the local reparations agenda.
