From our Truth Telling web portal:
"Our work here is to create a vehicle that examines, educates and informs the community of the political and socio-economic realities that have led and continue to lead to disparities of opportunity. We will not shy away from how these historical disparities directly impact and influence public perceptions around reparations and the nascence of racism. Only by providing historical context can we actively address and respond to a Truth & Reconciliation report of this magnitude. Our portal can, in essence, hold the truth accountable by illuminating the inadequacy of our perceptions of history and of one another. Only then can today’s and future generations create life-changing, deeply inclusive public and political policies impacting on and changing community sanctioned inequality – with the goal of opportunity for all."
