The regularly monthly meeting of the KC Reparations Coalition will be held on Monday, August 28, at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held virtually. The featured guest for the meeting will be Kamm Howard, founder of Reparations United.
Howard was formerly the male National Co-Chair of the National Coalition for Black Reparations in America (NCOBRA). He recently formed Reparations United, which has an aim of unifying thought and action within the reparations movement. Howard acknowledges that there is tremendous energy within the movement at the local and state levels where grass roots action is most relevant. However he views the current movement as potentially disjointed, visionless and harmfully competitive.
Reparations United seeks to solidify unity in at both the national and local level. Howard is the author of the book Laying the Foundation For Local Reparations: A Guide for Providing National Symmetry for Local Reparation Efforts. The book has served as a guide for many of the local reparations initiatives, including the Kansas City reparations movement.
Janay Reliford, chair of the Coalition said that, “We are excited to have Kamm as our guest. He is one of the most knowledgeable persons in the country on the national and international reparations movement. We look forward to him sharing valuable information with us.”
The KC Reparations Coalition’s goal is to provide information and education to the public in the metropolitan area on the reparations movement. The Coalition also supports the work of the Mayor’s Commission on Reparations. The Coalition is available to make presentations to community groups on the topic. To access the meeting, use the link
