WE’RE ADDRESSING YOU, BRANDY. MELANIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH. CALIFORNIA EXAMINES HISTORY OF DISCRIMINATION AGAINST AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE STATE. FROM COLONIAL TIMES TO PRESENT IN JUNE, THE FIRST OF ITS KIND REPARATIONS TASK FORCE ISSUED A NEARLY 500-PAGE REPORT THAT RECALLS THIS HISTORY AND PROPOSALS ACTIONS. THE TASK FORCE NOW WANTS YOUR DETAILS. JOINING US NOW IS CAMILLA MOORE. SHE IS THE CHAIRMAN OF THE OPERATIONS GROUP. CAMILLA. GOOD MORNING. LET’S JUMP. THIS IS THE FIRST OF TWO DAYS OF HEARINGS WHICH DISCUSSED THE TASK FORCE AND REPARATIONS. TELL US WHAT YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE IN THESE TWO DAYS. THANK YOU FOR WHAT I AM. YES, YES, OUR NEXT HEARING IS TOMORROW AND SATURDAY IN LOS ANGELES AT THE CALIFORNIA SCIENCE CENTER. THE FIRST DAY, TOMORROW OR FRIDAY, WILL BE DEDICATED ONLY TO THE OPERATIONS GROUP. WE ARE THE FIRST TASK FORCE MEMBERS TO REFLECT ON THE 500-PAGE INTERIM REPORT WE RELEASED OVER THE SUMMER. THEN WE’RE GOING TO CALL IN OUR TEAM OF ECONOMIC ADVISORS WHO WILL THEN SHOW YOU WHAT ACTUAL COMPENSATION MIGHT LOOK LIKE FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS FOR DAMAGE CAUSED BY A SPECIFIC STATE. I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS DISCUSSION TOMORROW. And then the Saturday is dedicated only to what to invite us to the expert witnesses for the information of the California public about internal and international reparations in these initiatives, which can potentially provide information what our endings plan for African-Americans will look like. AND SO THE COMMUNITY REPORT HAS BEEN OUT FOR A FEW MONTHS. WHAT HAS BEEN THE REACTION FROM PEOPLE READING THIS? THE REACTION WAS AMAZING. WE HAVE MAJOR PRESS, NATIONAL, INTERNATIONAL AND LOCAL. MANY CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARIES REQUEST PAPER COPIES. PEOPLE ARE USING THIS REPORT IN PROFESSIONAL AND ACADEMIC LEARNING GROUPS AND WE ARE ACTUALLY IN THE PROCESS OF HIRING COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANTS TO HELP US TAKE ALL THE INFORMATION WE’VE LEARNED THROUGHOUT THE STUDY YEAR FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP YEAR. YES, AND WE KNOW OF COURSE THIS IS NOT THE LAST REPORT. WHAT WILL HAPPEN BETWEEN NOW AND WHEN THE FINAL REPORT IS PUBLISHED? YES. THEREFORE, THE TASK FORCE WILL BE CONDUCTING MORE THAN NINE ANNUAL PUBLIC HEARINGS SINCE THE TASK FORCE STARTED NEXT JULY, THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. AT THAT TIME WE WILL BE BACK IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. AND SO THIS NEXT AND FINAL YEAR LOOKS TO BE ABOUT A WORKING GROUP OF TEN MEMBER WHO WILL LOOK AT AN ACTUAL PLAN FOR REFERENCE FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHILDREN IN LIGHT OF THE YEAR-LONG RESEARCH PHASE THAT WE ARE IN. AND YES, CAMIL, AS YOU MENTIONED, THIS HEARING IS TAKING PLACE IN LOS ANGELES. SO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. BUT HOW CAN THOSE HERE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA PROVIDE? YES. SO YOU CAN GO TO OUR WEBSITE, OAG DOT SA, WHICH IS GOING FORWARD. SLASH AB 3121. THERE WILL BE LIVE. YOU CAN ALSO CONTACT ETM MEDIA, WHICH IS A SACRAMENTO-BASED MEDIA GROUP THAT HAS BEEN REPRESENTING THE WORK OF THE GROUP SINCE ITS BEGINNING. THEY WILL ALSO BE LIVE STREAMING ON THEIR YOUTUBE.
