Closing The Wealth Gap: Restitution, Reparations, And Other Remedies

Closing the Wealth Gap: Restitution, Reparations, and Other Remedies

The New York State Bar Association’s Task Force on Racism, Social Equity, and the Law is charged with examining how structural racism permeates and influences facets of daily life leading to injustice and inequality among New Yorkers.  Join the Task Force for a free, non-CLE public forum and panel discussion on the historical context of the racial wealth gap, how reparations to American descendants of African slaves can bridge the gap, and the budget-neutral forms such reparations could take.
