Congress has finally taken steps to address reparations for slavery in policy. The Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act (H.R. 40), if passed, would examine the detrimental impacts slavery continues to have for African American people today. In local communities, some Friends are also beginning to address this original sin. In the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, Green Street Monthly Meeting, for one, has committed to give $500,000 as reparations to Black neighbors over the next decade.
Join us to learn how FCNL and F/friends are advocating for reparations in policy like H.R. 40 and engaging in reparations projects in local communities.
FCNL’s Domestic Policy Associate Abibat Rahman-Davies will discuss FCNL’s advocacy for reparations on Capitol Hill, and Lucy Duncan will share about Green Street Monthly Meeting’s reparations work. FCNL’s Quaker Outreach Coordinator Bobby Trice will moderate the conversation.
