California Reparations Task Force Concludes Two-Year Effort with Approval of Proposals Aimed at Compensating and Apologizing to Black Residents

The California Reparations Task Force has concluded their two-year effort by approving a list of proposals to be considered by state lawmakers, which include providing financial assistance to Black Californians, creating a center to study the economic and social effects of slavery, and establishing a memorial to honor the victims of slavery and discrimination. The task force also recommended that the state create a commission to study the effects of slavery and discrimination, and to make recommendations on how to address them. If passed, the proposals would be the first of their kind in the United States.
