About The Reparations Movement for Justice

REPARATION MOVEMENT ADVOCACY CAMPAIGN

Focused on Educating and Engaging the community overall.  The Reparations Movement for Justice is based on historical facts, and all Americans should be aware of the history of the country in which they reside.

Trillions of dollars are owed to African Americans for 400 years of slavery.  Three Bills are being put before Congress focused on the following areas:

  1. Economic Sustainability
  2. Education
  3. Housing

MORE THAN 45 MILLION PEOPLE, 14.5% OF ALL AMERICANS LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE.  THESE PROPOSED BILLS WILL ADDRESS THIS SIGNIFICANT ISSUE. THE PASSING OF THESE BILLS WILL BE THE CORE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT WILL PUT 5 MILLION AFRICAN AMERICANS AND LOW- INCOME AMERICANS OVERALL BACK TO WORK WITHIN A 7 TO 14 YEAR PERIOD.

BILL 1:
ECONOMIC STABILITY

Trillions of dollars are owed to African-Americans for 400 years of slavery. By 1860, 500,000 slaves had grown to 4 million!  Under the Emancipation Proclamation, freed slaves are to receive $300.  Although President Lincoln was successful in getting a bill passed by Congress for $1 Million in gold for freed slaves, the gold was never received.

$21B per year is being asked to be allocated to all three areas:

• Economic Stability
• Education
• Housing

In addition to monetary payback, also being asked is for 30,000 acres of land in each previously documented slave state including California, Arizona, New York City, Philadelphia, Virginia and Washington DC.

This land will be used to build homes as well as for business development activities focused on agricultural, food development, transportation, and other business industries.

BILL 2:
EDUCATION

Low to no cost Vocational Schools and Colleges will be implemented to make education available for all.  Lower wealth, lower expectations, and other circumstances have created an environment which has left African-Americans and other minorities without the same educational opportunities as many others in America.

Every year over 1 million students drop out of high school in the United States.  More than half are students of color, and most are low-income.  Providing a path for these youths and young adults to realize a better life is the goal.

Providing needed monetary compensation for students to go to school, work hard and succeed academically will be established in an education system that empowers all and can be directly linked to the overall economic growth of a nation.

BILL 3:
HOUSING

Homelessness in America overall must be addressed. It is estimated that over 500,000 people are homeless. Because of the rising cost of living, nearly 50% of Americans have also fallen into low income or poverty sector. 9.2 million African Americans fell below the poverty line in 2016 and more than 19,000 children.

A minimum of 50,000 homes and senior living accommodations will be built nationwide. These living accommodations will be provided cost effectively to aid African Americans and all Americans in need. To support Bill 2, dormitories will be built nationwide to accommodate the increasing number of students that will be attending higher education institutions.

Needed transportation will also be provided.
