The institution of chattel slavery has deep roots within the United States and continues to cast an ugly shadow over progress and equality. Years of systemic racism, discriminatory legislation, and violence have created stark contrasts in quality of living, health care, income, and access to education.
There is a bill in Congress called H.R. 40 / S. 40 that, if passed, would create a commission to investigate the legacy of chattel slavery and its ongoing harms, and develop reparations proposals for Black Americans in the U.S.
Representative Cori Bush (MO-1) also recently introduced a House resolution (H.Res. 414) that would formally acknowledge the federal government’s responsibility to provide reparations in all forms and would support existing reparations legislation including H.R. 40 / S. 40.
We can wait no longer: tell your elected leaders to support H.R. 40 / S. 40 and the Reparations Now! House Resolution, and pave the way for healing.
