Assess Your Wealth

The right amount for surrender in Restorative Actions should best reflect the proportion of your organization’s current wealth or personal wealth that has been augmented over time by systems of racial privilege. Based on the average proportion of wealth white households in America hold which exceed the level of wealth they might otherwise hold if America’s wealth were instead distributed with racial parity, 16% is offered as a guideline for surrender. Wealth, for these purposes, is defined as: the total value of the assets, including property, held by the organization or individual(s), minus amounts owed to others, minus amounts restricted by donors or estates, and minus amounts committed to external programs and ministries.
