Ald. Robin Rue Simmons speaks at national reparations forum.

Ald. Robin Rue Simmons (5th) spoke at a national reparations forum Wednesday to share details on Evanston’s reparations efforts, which will act as a model for other municipalities.

The forum was hosted by the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in (N’COBRA) and the National Black Cultural Information Trust (NBCIT).


It occurred just hours after a House Judiciary subcommittee reviewed H.R. 40, a bill that would establish a commission to study and develop policy for reparations at the federal level. H.R. 40 has been introduced in every congressional session since 1989, but has never been passed.
