Members agree to:
- Commit to supporting H.R. 40 (Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act).
- Form an advisory committee/commission composed of members of local, Black-led organizations to formally advise the Mayor on an approach to reparations — including strategies and opportunities to seek public and/or private dollars to fund pilot programs.
- When funding is identified, and in consultation with the committee/commission, lead development and implementation of a pilot reparations program targeted at a cohort of Black residents. Though these local programs would vary in style and scope and be considered very modest in the context of the $12 trillion in federal spending that is estimated to be required to close the Black/White wealth gap, they would serve as high-profile demonstrations for how the country can more quickly move from conversation to action on reparations for Black Americans.
