WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Monday, July 1, at 5pm, organizers plan to protest outside of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s residence for controversial comments McConnell made opposing Reparations.
A coalition of Reparations groups have successfully executed the nationwide National Reparations Day campaign and will culminate the day’s events with a Reparations Controversy: Evidentiary Hearing and First Amendment Speak-out at the home of Senator Mitch McConnell (617 C Street NE – Washington, DC) in protest of McConnell’s offensive and dismissive remarks; some of which include “I don’t think Reparations for something that happened 150 years ago for whom none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea… We’ve tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation. We elected an African American president.”
A press conference will be held at the National Press Club at 1pm to address Reparations and the 2020 Election.
Black Lawyers for Justice, Black-Empowerment Representatives and the New Black Panther Party attended the June 19th Congressional Hearing on Reparations on Capitol Hill.
This is going to be a very interesting and exciting scene as attorneys and Black activists, including the militant New Black Panther Party, will conduct an unprecedented Reparations hearing in front of the home Kentucky Senator.
