Proposed Reparations for Descendants of America’s Slaves—Considerations and Calculations
November 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Co-hosted by the CLA Racial Justice Committee and the Beverly Hills Bar Association.
This program presents a brief overview of proposed reparations, including legal framework, mathematical calculations based on wage theft and other depravations suffered by descendants of America’s slaves, and possible enactment mechanisms. The panel of subject matter experts will focus on 246 years of slavery and 100 years of quasi-slavery and discrimination which presently contribute to the tremendous wealth gap that exists between black Americans and white Americans. Both federal and California legislation will be discussed. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and will receive one hour of Elimination of Bias MCLE credit. Free to attend.
