[T]o create “antiracist institutional change,” which they say “is essential to supplement federal reparations,” they have created a pilot program that will undertake “institutional action.” The basis for this institutional action is the concept of  “‘applicative justice’—’applying justice to those who don’t now receive it.'” This, they say, is “as opposed to more idealistic conceptions of justice…”

That pilot program adopts a “…reparations framework of acknowledgment, redress, and closure…” or as they call it, “a Healing ARC—with initiatives for all three components. Each centers Black and Latinx patients and community members: those most impacted by unjust heart failure management and under whose direction appropriate restitution can begin to take shape.”
