ABOUT US

Reparations For Amherst is a grassroots organization, co-chaired by Michele Miller and Matthew Andrews, specifically focused on reparations for slavery and post-slavery anti-Black racism in Amherst. R4A is composed of non-Black ally volunteers, and guided by an advisory board of Black stakeholders in the community. We seek to work with our town government, anchor institutions, the business community, and individual residents to establish a means for economic reparations and a community-led process for full repair.
