For 400 years, America has built a racist system of profits on the backs of enslaved and incarcerated African Americans. Until we start actively and truthfully retelling our nation’s story, we can’t heal from the traumas of our past. And it starts with Reparations.
That’s why I endorsed Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee's sponsored H.R. 40 bill — it would fund a commission to study Reparations, specifically for descendants of enslaved Africans. This is a great step in the right direction, and I am committing to supporting the Congresswoman to build momentum for this bill.
Add your name if you believe that Reparations are a necessary step toward racial justice.
