restitution is The restoration of something stolen to its proper owner
What is described below is imperfect action. It is where I chose to start my restitution journey. And I choose to continue to evolve and update my restitution practice as is informed by impacted communities.
10% of every purchase made through From The Hearth (now called The One Person Revolution) between October 14 2020 and November 30 2021 was paid as restitution to individuals and communities that experience oppression as a result of western imperialism and its subsidiaries (colonialism, capitalism, racism, sexism, etc.). I hold an incredible amount of unearned privilege at the intersection of my identities; as such, these are some of my efforts to give that unearned privilege back.
Total sales during this 13 month period: $15,588.72
10% of sales paid as restitution: $1,558.87
As a general statement, these payments were intentionally directed towards individuals and organizations which are not non-profits or registered charities due to their natural entanglement with colonial government agencies.
Below is a list of reports which indicate From The Hearth’s sales and completed payments.
