What Reconciliation Means to me:

...laying the foundational building block for reconciliation on the political and economic levels.

"The Belonging Matters framework is one of the best approaches I know of. It builds that sense of belonging and inclusion for everyone, laying the foundational building block for reconciliation on the political and economic levels."
