Suggested message for you to send:

I'm writing to urge you to vote in favor of H.R. 40: The Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. As a nation, we need to address our past history and current reality of racially-discriminatory federal policies, and the formation of this commission to study and propose reparations is a critical first step.

Thank you for your time and attention.
