The ongoing wounds of slavery and more than four centuries of entrenched racial oppression continues to impact every part of American society. Systemic disparities and injustices will endure unless proactive steps are taken to acknowledge and eliminate them. One way to address entrenched racial discrimination is through the study and development of reparations proposals. Urge your elected officials to cosponsor the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act (S. 1083/H.R. 40).
No person should have to choose between caring for themselves or a family member and keeping their job and income. Yet each year, millions are workers are forced to make that difficult choice. The United States is the only advanced economy that does not offer paid leave to its workers. Paid family and medical leave provides employees the necessary time to recover after illness or surgery, to take care of an ill family member, or to care for a newborn infant. Urge Congress to pass the FAMILY Act to provide paid family and medical leave for all workers in America.
