AEU Works to Repair the Harm of Racism

We passed an important resolution on reparations at our 102nd AEU Assembly. We urge all to study the effects of racism and focus on areas "where such injustice is experienced: educational opportunities, income and wealth, housing and food access, environmental racism, cultural erasure and exploitation, the criminal justice system including incarceration, and health care." Read the full "Toward Repairing the Harm of Racism" resolution.
