Abstract:     
In 2007, Professor Eric K. Yamamoto acknowledged that reparations theory and practice had reached a crossroads and called for a new strategic framework that reparations advocates could utilize in working to achieve redress for social and historical wrongs. My Article attempts to answer Yamamoto’s call. In it, I situate my proposal for a truth commission to redress the post-9/11 torture program in a new Inclusive Model for Social Healing. In the past, reparations advocates have relied on litigation – a model that excludes participants other than the named parties – to obtain redress. By increasing the number of stakeholders in a reparations scheme, the Inclusive Model of Social Healing has the potential to attract more widespread support from the public and is more resilient to criticism than exclusive litigation models.
