Recognizing that racial injustice stretches beyond our Association into every facet of
American life and history, the UUA [Unitarian Universalist Association] supports the following pieces of legislation:
H.R. 40, The Commission to Study Reparations Proposals for African Americans Act
H.R. 40 proposes establishing a Commission to examine the lingering negative effects
of slavery. The Commission’s responsibilities would include recommending
appropriate ways to educate the American public about their findings, and crafting
a proposal for reparations, which, if passed by Congress, could lead to concrete
actions to help rectify the deleterious impact of racism on black Americans.
