Giving and Receiving Just Apologies: A Restorative Path to Racial Healing and Reparations

Just Apologies are a necessary first step for accountability and reparations. Yet, apologies are not enough, can be unsatisfying, and even inflame. Why? What patterns are showing up in our apologies? Just Apologies open a path for transformational healing and forgiveness. Just Apologies recognize dominance and embody the essential healing work for ending oppression. What does it mean to offer a Just Apology? On an interpersonal, national, or global scale, Just Apologies are rooted in connection and signal a willingness to engage deeper. In this webinar, you will be invited to acknowledge past and current hurts, release resentments and regrets, and identify relationships where a Just Apology can begin a journey to restore trust and forge a path toward justice.
