Latest News: New SCGIS Website Coming Soon

We are excited to announce that our new website will be launching soon! This is the result of almost two years of hard work by the SCGIS Website committee, our contractor (One Big Robot), and others. The new website will include a clean, modern, mobile-friendly design, and will offer many improvements over the old site. We hope you will all find the new site useful and enjoyable to navigate, and we’re looking forward to showing it off soon!

Featured Story

The African American Redress Network (AARN) supports organizations on the grassroots, regional and state levels in promoting reparations. Our work addresses U.S. historical racial injustices by facilitating interdisciplinary research, capacity-building, education, and advocacy. We center the needs and goals of our network members as they secure redress at the local level. We focus on fostering collaboration at the local and national levels, supporting and expanding the work of redress activists, and creating a new broad consensus around redress.
