TRUTH COMMISSION REPORTS
LAND BACK AND THE THIRD RECONSTRUCTION:
A TRUTH COMMISSION WITH THE SHINNECOCK NATION
On October 11, 2021 - Indigenous People’s Day - more than 350 people gathered virtually to hear testimony from Shinnecock leaders on the impact of the intersecting evils of poverty, systemic racism, environmental devastation, militarism/colonialism, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism, as well as how the community is organizing in response.
HUNGER, HOUSING, AND THE THIRD RECONSTRUCTION:
A TRUTH COMMISSION WITH THE CAPITAL REGION
On December 7th we gathered to learn from the plight, fight, and insight of Capital Region community members who are engaged in struggles around food and housing insecurity. In recent years, New York has passed transformative legislation to meet the needs of poor and marginalized communities relating to food and housing. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated the extent of these crises and thrown millions into poverty and precarity.
