The Green Party of the United States Resolution reads as follows:
The GPUS hereby states our support for U.S. House Resolution 40 - Commission to Study and Develop Reparations Proposals.
The GPUS will work to inform our members and the public about the significance of the passage of H.R. 40 as a reparatory remedy for institutionalized slavery and discrimination to living Americans of African descent.
The GPUS will establish a Working Group on Reparations, headed by the Green Party of the United States Black Caucus, that will engage with the public, reparations organizations and lawmakers to increase public and government support for the passage of H.R. 40.
This resolution is a call to action to heal our country of the grave injustice of American slavery and its ongoing effects on all citizens of the United States.
