Friday’s schedule breaks Commission members into smaller groups to facilitate discussion to better get to know one another, as well as better understand what “reparations” means to individual commission members as they continue to move forward as a working body.


Saturday, Reparations commission members, as well as City and County staff, welcome members of the community to participate in discussions looking at “what reparations are, and what does that look like in the community and answering the question, “what does community engagement look like in the community”.
