Reparations

Thank you, dear Good and Thoughtful Friends, for waiting just a little longer as we prepare our page to announce our eight BIPOC Reparations successes, from Navajo Mountain to Black Wall Street to La Victoria to Maricopa and Jefferson Counties, within Indigenous education, Black farming, homeless racial equity, and recognition of authentic history.

Patient, activist colleagues, we will soon inform and invite you.

Initially launched on Juneteenth 2020, it is ongoing. Until the page is complete, here is Jenny’s telephone number 480-262-3545.

We know, it has been a long wait, too long.
