Envisioning Reparations in Asheville
Join CJJ-West in-person or virtually for "Envisioning Reparations" on Thursday, February 2 at 11:30 am. Dr. Dwight Mullen* will help us understand how the Asheville/Buncombe Reparations Commision is working toward healing the racial gaps in our community. The event will include a Question and Answer period where attendees will be invited to submit questions in written form (we'll provide paper and pens and those attending virtually can add their questions to the chat). At 12:30 pm participants are invited to gather in the fellowship hall for lunch. Papusas will be available for purchase on site or you are welcome to bring your own lunch.
Please register via this Google Form.
Indicating your food and attendance preferences will take less than 2 minutes, and helps us prepare for this hybrid event.
*Professor Emeritus at UNCA, Dr. Mullen offered courses in public policy, American politics, and African and African-American politics. For more than a decade, Mullen and his students produced an annual research project, "The State of Black Asheville," collecting and presenting an array of data on health, housing, income, education, employment and incarceration rates cataloging the severe racial disparities in Asheville. Now, as the chair of the Asheville/Buncombe Reparations Commission, he is leading our community toward addressing this harm.
