July 13, 2021 — Join faith leaders from various traditions as they call on Congress to pass H.R.40, a bill to study the legacy of slavery, its ongoing harms, and produce proposals for repair. Congress can make history by bringing this critical piece of legislation to the House floor.  Join us as we tell legislators that Justice Can’t Wait! #HR40totheFLOOR #ReparationsNOW #RepairTheBreach
