Our Mission is Reparations for Victims of Slavery and Their Descendants

The cost of slavery, both in its chattel form before the Civil War and its continuation since through Jim Crow and as prison labor, is incalculable. 

However, policy makers, when considering measures such as lives saved from, for example, from improved environmental or safety standards, generally estimate the value of a human life at approximately $10 million.

If by rough estimate, one considers that probably at least 100 million people were either slaves, descendants of slaves or victims of Jim Crow and the War on Drugs, then the amount of reparations should be at least $100 trillion.

Our wealth was built – literally – on the bodies of tens of millions of slaves, who lived, suffered and died for no other reason than the color of their skin. This is a debt which must be repaid.

We also have sponsored an online petition to ask Congress to recognize Juneteenth as a federal holiday.

We currently have a team of college interns. We intend to also build out our professional staff. As we succeed in funding raising, our plan is to transition from volunteer to market rate compensation. For now, we are looking for people who believe in our mission and seek to make a difference, and are willing to help us achieve racial equity in America.

The business manager will be responsible for all aspects of a startup, including financial management and legal and regulatory compliance.

This is a virtual position, and hours are flexible.
