As part of our commitment to dismantling systemic racism and closing the racial wealth and income gap, NETWORK has been working to establish a federal reparations commission for over a year. While our work has focused on advancing H.R.40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act, there are two paths available to us for making repair a reality. President Biden also has the power to create an H.R.40-style commission by executive order.
This is a rare historic opportunity to advance a federal policy that seeks to address and rectify the sinful effects of slavery in the United States.
Join NETWORK's Executive Director, Mary Novak, Deputy Executive Director and Chief Equity Officer, Joan Neal, Government Relations Advocate, Jarrett Smith, and special guests to learn more about a Catholic framework for reparations, as well as how the movement to establish a commission is shifting our focus to the Biden administration. You will also learn what you can do to join NETWORK and our coalition partners in our advocacy efforts.
This webinar will be recorded, and everyone who registers will receive the recording afterwards.
