Reparations: Alchemical Agent for Healing & Repair

  • June 14, 2023
  • 7:00 PM
  • via Zoom

In recognition of Juneteenth, BYM’s Growing Diverse Leadership Committee is sponsoring a lecture by Lucy Duncan and Rob Peagler entitled “Reparations: Alchemical Agent for Healing and Repair” on Wednesday, June 14, at 7:00 p.m.

  • Lucy and Rob will speak about the ways they have seen reparations work as a powerful force for transformation at the relational, spiritual, and material levels. They will tell stories about its power in transmuting intrapersonal, interpersonal and systemic dynamics and as a tool for addressing the centuries old systemic harms of slavery and its afterlives, as well as the theft, genocide and dispossession of Indigenous Peoples. In addition, they will speak about the Quaker case for reparations historically and offer metaphors and concrete examples of this powerful instrument to address the root level issues of our collective complicity, both as a country and as Quakers.
  • Registration for this Zoom event is here
