Reparations for African Americans in California

You are here

The Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans issued its interim report to the California Legislature. Jovan Scott Lewis, ISSI Advisory Board Member, serves on the committee. The interim report surveys the ongoing and compounding harms experienced by African Americans as a result of slavery and its lingering effects on American society today, presenting the national context and California-specific harms in a variety of areas including housing, health, employment, and education. The interim report also includes preliminary recommendations for policies that the California Legislature could adopt to remedy those harms. A final report will be issued next year.
