CONGRESSIONAL EDUCATIONAL PROJECT
MORE THAN EVER, NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE A STAND FOR REPARATIONS!
Please make a contribution now to the Mystic Valley Area Branch’s special reparations event in support of reparations! Our goal is to purchase and send copies of the book, From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the Twenty First Century, to each and every member of the 117th U.S. Congress. This is a tall order, but with everyone’s help, we can do it!
Your financial participation is critical.
DONATE HERE and be sure to note ‘reparations’ in the ‘write a note’ field.
During Black History Month we will begin hosting discussions of the book with our congressional representatives. We hope that you will join these upcoming Chapter Conversations. More info to come!
Hear more from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. about the unique plight of U.S. Black descendants of slavery and the case for reparations.
Reparations: Help Us Engage & Educate our Legislators
In accordance with the educational program we initiated in June 2020, the NAACP Mystic Valley Area Branch is purchasing and sending copies of From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the Twenty First Century ito each and every member of the 117th U.S. Congress.
Our aim is to engage and educate legislators on the history of the reparations movement and its goal of repairing the damage wrought by centuries of government-sanctioned chattel slavery, segregation, domestic terrorism, mass incarceration, and systemic racism One legacy of this systemic exclusion is the massive racial wealth gap; in Boston, for example, household median net worth for U.S. born Black Americans is $8; for whites it is $247,500. It is long past time to move forward to repair the damage that has led us to this place.
We will be kicking off our Community chapter discussions with our congressional representatives very soon. Stay tuned for dates!
