In 2016 a Seattle-based artist created Reparations.me, a website for people of color to request and receive specific reparations on a small, individual scale from white people.

While there hasn’t been activity on the site since 2017, Reparations.me was launched to let people of color request money for specific services or items, and for White people to fund those requests, as well offer their own services or items. “Reparations.me enacts reparations on a small, individualized scale as the country reckons with the concept of structural reparations.
