Reparations Resolution Passes In Chicago City Council

The Chicago City Council recently passed a resolution calling for the establishment of the Chicago Descendants of Enslaved Africans Reparations Commission to ensure equity, equality, and parity for citizens of African descent in Chicago who are experiencing poverty and to explore what can be done to close racial gaps in homeownership, educational funding, healthcare, government contracts, and anything else they find that needs to be addressed.
