FEATURING NATASHA MARIN – A new website that connects Americans with one another to offer an exchange of goods and services is named for the politically charged term, “reparations.” Founder Natasha Marin started the website as a way to address what she described to the Los Angeles Times, as a way for white Americans to “cash in your whiteness to help other people.”
On the website are offers that include airline miles, childcare, and running errands and requests that include help with moving. Overall, there are more offers than requests.
Visit the website at www.Reparations.me.
