New York, NY September 14, 2021 –(PR.com)– Today, Liberated Capital, Decolonizing Wealth Project’s donor community and funding vehicle focused on providing resources to Black, Indigenous and other communities of color, officially announced the Restitution Study Group (RSG) as part of the inaugural cohort who will receive funding to support local, regional and national movement-building and advocacy efforts to advance reparations in the United States. The grant will help further Restitution Study Group’s mission of securing reparations from national and international corporations complicit in slavery through research, education, outreach and litigation.
The #Case4Reparations is a first of its kind funding initiative, launched in March of 2021 by Decolonizing Wealth Project, aiming to fuel and amplify conversations and campaigns around reparations where wealth (money or land) can be redistributed by institutions and/or governments to Black and Native American communities in the United States. The goal for #Case4Reparations is to become a multi-year, multi-million dollar initiative to support systemic and policy change efforts that return wealth to impacted individuals.
“It’s time to start having meaningful conversations about reparations and how we can come together as a country to heal from systemic racism. The Restitution Study Group is making critical strides to shift policies and systems that result in the payback of money from governments or institutions in the United States to Black communities,” said Edgar Villanueva, founder and principal of Decolonizing Wealth Project and Liberated Capital. “We’re looking forward to being a part of their journey and elevating their impactful work to secure reparations from institutions complicit in slavery.”
“We are honored to have been selected for a grant from the Decolonizing Wealth Project and Liberated Capital, their donor and funding vehicle. This will support us in our efforts to disgorge wealth from tainted corporations and their predecessors acquired by stealing people from Africa to enslave, torturing them into submission, forcing them to breed more humans, and keeping the fruit of their labors,” said Deadria Farmer-Paellmann, Executive Director of the Restitution Study Group.
