Demanding Long Overdue Property Justice
George Floyd could have been a millionaire. So could the descendants of the families who once owned thriving businesses in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ditto for the descendants of the Bruce family of Manhattan Beach, California.
Yet their families did not reap the full rewards of hard work and entrepreneurship. They were deprived of the accumulation of generational wealth over time. Their land was stolen—illegally, violently—by white Americans.
These stories are the tip of the iceberg. During a time of unprecedented interest in genealogy, reparations, and social justice, Where Is My Land is determined to help Black Americans reclaim stolen land and secure restitution.
- We help Black Americans discover connections to stolen land through research, data, and technology.
- We help families and descendants reclaim stolen land and secure restitution through traditional advocacy and digital amplification.
- We educate the public about the hidden history of Black land theft by whites through partnerships, content, and programming.
"Thank you so much for all of your help as well as the organization in the Willie Jones case, my grandparents would be so proud of this story getting the recognition and justice they deserve. My family has gone through a lot of sadness, pain, and turmoil WIML is a true gift from the creator."
"Thank you to Where Is My Land for their support in assisting me in my fight to reclaim my land. May justice roll down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream!"
"Thank you to Where Is My Land because before you all there was no one else out there to help me and others like me. This is a very emotional journey and you guys have been supportive, caring, and more like family members, not just an organization. I pray WIML gets the financial support it needs to help more families. I am very grateful to be chosen to work with WIML because over 400 families have reached out to WIML, and I was one of the lucky ones."
"The Where Is My Land Organization is striving to help right the wrongs inflicted upon so many families across this nation. They are unwavering in their mission to help these families navigate the complexities of seeking long-overdue restitution for lands unjustly taken. Our family is extremely grateful for all of the heart, guidance, and effort they give to this cause. I sincerely hope WIML will soon get the recognition and funding they deserve."
