“Everywhere across the Caribbean the presence of our enslavers can be identified in our daily domestic lives. This history is not remote. It is alive and pressing upon our daily affairs.” Sir Hilary Beckles, Chairman, CARICOM Reparations Commission
In 2013, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) established the CARICOM Reparations Commission. The Commission is dedicated to building the moral, ethical, and legal case for reparations by former colonial nations in Europe, to the formerly enslaved people and nations of the Caribbean.
RJI joins this all important conversation and seeks to engage with efforts to put forth the case for reparations for the people and nations of the Caribbean.
