PDIA in Action: Reparations in Asheville, NC


Tuesday, April 13, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm


Zoom registration information below.


There has been a lack of progress and consensus in designing and implementing reparation initiatives in Asheville since the passing of the reparation resolution in July 2020. As part of BSC's MLD103M course, students at the Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Graduate School of Education spent 7 weeks working with a former Asheville City Councilor to better understand this problem and to help identify ideas and entry points. In this presentation, the student team will share some of their key takeaways and policy recommendations from this experience.

Presenters: Bethany Dill, Student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education; Isabel Mejia Fontanot, Kent Shi, Kerianne DiBattista, Students at the Harvard Kennedy School; William Keith Young, Former Asheville, NC City Councilor and Alumni of BSC's Implementing Public Policy Executive Education course. Moderated by Salimah Samji, Director of Building State Capability (BSC).
