We seek justice and reparations for the victims of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre through innovative legal strategies, public education, and advocacy. We focus on identifying, locating, and providing a platform for the descendants of the survivors of the Massacre to share their and their ancestors' stories. Our public education efforts will publicize these stories and educate about the Massacre and its ongoing impacts. Our advocacy efforts agitate for justice for survivors' descendants and support strategies that bolster present-day Greenwood community and policies that deliver justice and pay reparations.
