H.R.40 Sample Letter

I am writing to let you know of my strong support of legislation that would establish a federal commission to study proposals of reparation for American Descendants of Slaves (ADOS). Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has re-introduced this legislation in the House of Representatives (H.R. 40), and Sen. Cory A. Booker introduced a companion bill in the Senate (S.1083).

 

This legislation is long overdue and should be put into place this year. My hope is that as the 116th Congress gets underway, that you will sign on to this bill as a co-sponsor and do all that you can to ensure its enactment. This legislation is an important first step in acknowledging the inherent cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery as practiced in the United States, and would help millions of American Descendants of Slaves (ADOS) begin to heal the subsequent emotional wounds that have been festering for centuries. In confronting the ugly legacy of slavery, the commission created by H.R. 40 would examine the impact slavery has had on the racial and economic inequalities still suffered today. The commission would also be charged with reviewing reparation proposals to help black Americans regain some of the stature stripped of their forefathers lost through no fault of their own and making recommendations on how we as a nation can best heal these wounds.

 

I hope that you will join me in strongly support H.R. 40 as well as the companion bill in the Senate and be receptive to hearing input from ADOS Economist, Scholars, and Thinkers. Please let me know your thoughts on this legislation, as well as what you intend to do to see that it is enacted in the 116th Congress, and what I may do to help.
