Urge Congress to Pass H.R.40 - Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act

This petition had 31 supporters


This bill establishes the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans to examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies.  Like Germany did after WWII, it is time for the US to confront its painful past and see where and how we can come to terms with that past by making amends to the people disenfranchised by slavery and Jim Crow.  Urge your representatives to pass this bill to begin the process of making reparations.
