California Reparations Task Force Set To Make Historic Recommendations

California’s reparations task force will present its final recommendations on Thursday at an opening hearing in Sacramento. The task force, created in 2020, could recommend a variety of measures such as financial payments, educational opportunities, and land grants. The task force is also considering how the state can formally apologize for its role in perpetuating racism.

The recommendations of the task force will then be sent to the state legislature, which will decide whether to implement them. If the legislature does approve reparations, California would be the first state in the nation to do so.

However, California is not the only state considering reparations for Black people. Other states, including New York, Florida, and Maryland have established task forces to study the issue.

In New York, their task force has recommended that the state provide financial reparations to Black people who can prove they were denied housing or employment opportunities because of their race.
