The Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act is designated S. 40/H.R. 40 for symbolic reasons. After the Civil War, former slaves were promised 40 acres and a mule—the first systematic attempt to provide a form of reparations. Introduced in Congress every year since 1989, H.R. 40 cleared committee for the first time in April of this year and is heading to the House floor.
Email your senators and representative and tell them to support the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act (S. 40/H.R. 40).

As the one-year mark of George Floyd’s murder approaches, we demand accountability and justice for all and to demand that ourour elected leaders and those who swear and oath to protect us respect our rights, no matter our race, background or where we live. The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (H.R. 1280) takes initial steps toward that goal and will work to end police brutality, protect civil rights and liberties, and change the culture of law enforcement agencies.
Email your senators and ask them to support the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
This bill establishes the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans.
