Congress has finally taken steps to address reparations for slavery. If passed, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act (H.R. 40) would examine the detrimental impacts that slavery continues to have today. In local communities, some Friends are also beginning to address this original sin.
At June’s Quaker Changemaker event, “H.R. 40 and the Quaker Push for Reparations,” we’ll learn how FCNL and F/friends are advocating for reparations in Congress and local communities.
Join us to hear FCNL’s Domestic Policy Associate Abibat Rahman-Davies discuss FCNL’s advocacy for reparations on Capitol Hill, and to hear from Lucy Duncan about Green Street Monthly Meeting’s work on reparations. FCNL’s Quaker Outreach Coordinator Bobby Trice will moderate the conversation.
