Who We Are

Welcome to the Restitution Study Group (RSG) web page. We are a not-for-profit institute based in the New York City-metropolitan area. Founded by Deadria Farmer-Paellmann in 2000, we examine and execute innovative approaches to healing the injuries of exploited and oppressed people. The RSG partners with community advocates to bring about positive change through:

litigation
legislation
genealogy and DNA research
direct action
