Reparations Tracking

BRP Information Repository

The Black Reparations Project is compiling links to California and national Black reparations initiatives. The repository aims to:

  1. Serve as a resource for academic research and facilitate student access to research projects, internships, and job opportunities.
  2. Help researchers and policymakers gain a better understanding of the policy landscape surrounding Black reparations.
  3. Identify gaps and opportunities for technical assistance and university partnerships.
  4. Share lessons learned and facilitate stakeholder connections.
