The California Reparations Task Force will hold a two-day public hearing on Friday, Sept. 23, and Saturday, Sept. 24, at California Science Center, located at 700 Exposition Drive in Los Angeles. 


Attorney Kamilah Moore, a Leimert Park resident, along with State Senator Steven Bradford (D-Gardena) and Assemblymember Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-Los Angeles) serve on the task force and plan to participate.   


The public can attend  and give testimony during the one-hour public comment sessions held each day starting at 9 a.m. According to Moore,  the community’s input is vital to helping the task force fulfill its charge of developing reparation proposals for African Americans.

In addition to public comment, task force members will offer reflections on completing the first half of a two-year process, discuss community engagement strategies, and review specific criteria to include in the final report. 



Day 2 will be dedicated to discussions on human rights law/international law frameworks for reparations where we will hear from expert scholars, as well as from our retained economists/experts on potential compensation formulas for specific state-sanctioned atrocitiesagainst the California African American community,” said Moore.
