Katie Sandson, program director of CRRJ’s Racial Redress and Reparations Lab, and Malcolm Clarke, CRRJ’s Elizabeth Zitrin Justice Fellow, participated in a virtual panel discussion, organized by The Black Reparations Project at Mills College at Northeastern University, Feb. 23 and 24.
They spoke about the frameworks of restorative justice, transitional justice and reparations, and how they impact CRRJ‘s work.
Some harms can’t be addressed restoratively. However, the perpetrators of those harms must still be held accountable to those victims
— Malcolm Clarke, Elizabeth Zitrin Justice Fellow at Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project at Northeastern University School of Law.
The Racial Redress and Reparations Lab’s mission is to provide community education and engagement that paves the way for successful projects of repair and recognition. Sandson, Clarke and their colleagues offer expertise in designing reparative processes, historical and legal research, convening assistance, and policy development.
