Coming to the Table statement on Police Violence
By Jodie Geddes, Megan Hester,
and the CTTT Reparations Working Group
Coming to the Table grieves the heartbreaking loss of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Oluwatoyin ‘Toyin’ Salau, Rayshard Brooks, Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells, Riah Milton, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, David McAtee, Sean Reed and all of the countless people murdered by police in recent months, and throughout the history of this country.
This moment is a call to action. Reparations are a personal and systemic responsibility, and as organizations, individuals, and families we must commit to taking action every single day that gets us closer to a more just and truthful society. Reparations also require dismantling and transforming the systems that uphold white supremacy such as the criminal justice system, housing, healthcare, and education.
