|[SUBJECT LINE] URGENT! HR40 – Expert Witness Testimony Request
I’m a part of a national coalition of reparations advocates concerned with the current version of H.R.40.
I’m writing today to urge you to invite Dr. William Darity to provide expert witness testimony to the upcoming subcommittee hearing on H.R.40 on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.
Dr. William Darity is an Economics Professor and Reparations Scholar at Duke University. Dr. Darity submitted written testimony at the H.R.40 hearing on June 19, 2019.
Dr. Darity’s testimony should be prioritized because he is an American Slavery Descendant and the premiere expert on reparations. Dr. Darity dedicated 30 years to studying reparations and building up the case for reparations.
Thank you for considering our request. I look forward to watching the H.R.40 Hearing on Wednesday, February 17th and I hope to see Dr. Darity testify along with other experts at this historical and monumental event.
Who can I talk to about these requests? Who in this office is directly responsible for relations with the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties?
Thank you for considering my request. Enjoy your day.
