Bush made international headlines when she introduced her historic Reparations Now resolution on May 17, 2023.

Endorsed by nearly 300 organizations, H.Res.414 calls for the US government to create a holistic reparations program to address the ongoing legacies of chattel slavery, Jim Crow, and present-day anti-Black policies. The measure also states that the federal government should be prepared to invest at least $14 trillion to eliminate the racial wealth gap.

Here are the representatives who have signed on to the Reparations Now resolution:
