CALL SCRIPT: live call 

 

 

Good morning,

 

My name is ______ and I'm a voter living in your district.

 

I've recently viewed the Black Agenda Scorecard and am calling to strongly urge [representative’s name] to support Immediate COVID19 Stimulus Relief and other measures specifically designed for and targeted to aid Black Americans Descended from Persons Enslaved in the U.S.

                                                                                                                                                                                              

Here in our district, as well as all across America, Black Americans are going to suffer most from the health and economic damage done by COVID19.

 

Even before the COVID19 crisis, over half of Black America lived in asset poverty and were worth less than a single dollar in combined wealth.

 

Relief is needed now. 

 

That's why I'm strongly urging [representative’s name] to:

 

  • have a dedicated page on your website for Black Americans and COVID19

  • sponsor legislation for a new designation in the U.S. Census for ADOS (American Descendants of Slavery) to allow future protections and set asides

  • and to support Immediate COVID19 Stimulus Relief And Other Measures specifically for Black Americans who are descended from persons enslaved in the U.S. in any current or upcoming stimulus legislation. 

 

Last but not least, once we overcome this crisis, Congress needs to immediately revise H.R. 40 and enact reparations for Black Americans descendants of Slavery. 

 

Thank you.
