Letter to Biden on Reparations Committee

On June 21st, eleven U.S. Senators including Cory Booker, Bernard Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren wrote a letter to President Biden urging him to establish a Presidential Commission to study and issue proposals on a national apology and reparations for African Americans.

As the letters goes on the state, the “legacy of slavery remains with us today and is compounded by ongoing racism and discrimination. […] We must fully document the harms inflicted upon African Americans throughout our history, confront the egregious inequalities we see today with the knowledge of their deep roots, and seek to help African American families and communities realize the promise of equality and opportunity that this country has always purported to offer.”
