Members of the California Reparations Task Force met in Oakland for two-days of hearings on December 14-15 to discuss next steps after the release of their interim report in June 2022.  


Assemblymember Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-57) is one of two state legislators on the Task Force looking to help the public understand the purpose and process of the Task Force. 


“We are not the determining authority on the final reparations outcome – the Task Force is a study group that will provide the State’s legislative bodies recommendations in our final report due out by June 30, 2023,” said Jones-Sawyer. “Those recommendations will then be taken up by the Assembly and State Senate for consideration and debate in the 2024 legislative session.” 


All Reparation Task Force hearings are open to the public in-person or by streaming online. For more information, and to review the interim report, the public is encouraged to visit for more information
