Tell Congress to Pass Reparations Bill

US Congress should act to repair harms of slavery by passing H.R. 40

The time for the United States to account for its legacy of slavery is long overdue.

Black people in the US continue to feel the impacts of slavery today in the form of structural racism, violence, discrimination and disparities in areas such as health, housing, education, economics, policing and law enforcement. The mass protests stemming from pervasive racial inequality and unlawful killings of Black people, like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Tony McDade, reflect the US government’s failure to provide redress for this long history of abuse.

US House Resolution 40 (H.R. 40) is a federal bill that will establish a commission to examine the impacts of slavery and other racist laws and practices. The commission would help pave the way for a full and truthful reckoning and accounting for past harms.

To build a better, more just future, we must address and repair the continuing legacy of slavery.
