How this will help

Congressman John Conyers has been introducing H.R. 40 to the House of Representatives for 24 years! It is time this important petition is supported. It calls for a commission to study the horrific effects of slavery and how slavery continues to affect the descendants of American slaves. It supports recommendations based on the commission's studies to address the conditions, including economic, caused by inter-generational poverty rooted in slavery.
