Reparations4slavery:   A portal for white families walking the path of racial healing through engaging in direct repair.  The founder, Lotte Lieb Dula, created this portal when she learned that, to her surprise, her family had been enslavers.  She wanted to make amends for the behavior of her ancestors and help other people who are interested in doing the same.  Lotte Lieb Dula, founder, accepting.  white anti racist

Pure Justice:  An organization centered on advocating for criminal justice reform and exonerating falsely accused and convicted inmates outside of those placed on death row.   The founder, RoShawn Evans, had personal experience as an innocent man accused and convicted of a crime, and found it very difficult to get anyone or any group to help him exonerate himself. His first book, Stolen Identity, details his harrowing experience and how similar experiences are prevalent, especially for young men of color, in our communities. RoShawn Evans, founder, accepting.
