“Oppressions and Repair”
The colloquium took place from 1-15 July in New York City
The 2022 colloquium included scholars, artists, activists, and others who work across disciplines, use differing terminologies, and work on issues of repair after the trauma and harm of multiple oppressions. This included a variety perspectives on restorative justice; the criminal justice system; reparations regarding slavery and native genocide and land theft; repair of the earth in the face of environmental racism; distributive justice around economic inequality and work for equity; and other modes of oppression.
