Civics: “Truth and Reconciliation Implementation Workgroup”

Dean Mosiman:

Under the draft resolution, the Truth and Reconciliation Implementation Workgroup would meet at least bimonthly; design and facilitate the implementation of a truth and reconciliation process; host a community forum or forums to allow opportunities for BIPOC residents to voice their grievances around past injustices in the city; facilitate a community forum or forums with expert presenters on reconciliation and healing; and draft a report to submit to the EOC and then the City Council detailing policy recommendations that the city could implement to address past wrongs.

“If approved, it will be important for policymakers to consider how to create the capacity to carry out the work,” Davis said.
