Join the #BreatheWithMe Revolution
and the Fight for Reparations

On January 19, 2021, the 5th Annual Day of Racial Healing, Congresswoman Jackson Lee and Senator Booker will reintroduce HR 40: Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. This bill establishes the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans. The commission would examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies. Among other requirements, the commission would identify (1) the role of federal and state governments in supporting the institution of slavery, (2) forms of discrimination in the public and private sectors against freed slaves and their descendants, and (3) lingering negative effects of slavery on living African-Americans and society. In addition to supporting this bill in Congress, we also join the #BreatheWithUs campaign in calling for the Biden/Harris administration to be leaders and action takers towards economic, environmental, and social reparations for all descendants of formerly enslaved Americans.
