Petition of Support

By adding your name/organization to this public listing, you are indicating your support of the mission and goals of ADCRC.


The Illinois African Descent-Citizens Reparations Commission (ADCRC), sanctioned by 20 ILCS 405/405- 540, consists of Illinois residents appointed to serve as Commissioners. The Commission is tasked with researching and presenting findings on Illinois' involvement in the slave trade and its effects on African Americans, evaluating ways to recognize the past, and curating recommendations for reconciliation through reparations.

Some of the duties the Commission shall perform include:        

  1. Develop and implement measures to ensure equity, equality, and parity for African American descendants of slavery;
  2. Hold hearings to discuss the implementation of measures to ensure equity, equality, and parity for African American descendants of slaves; and        
  3. Educate the public on reparations for African American descendants of slavery.

By taking action to rectify these wrongs, Illinois demonstrates a commitment to healing and advancing equity for all members of our community. For this reason, we express our strong support for the ADCRC’s study of injustices and disparities suffered by African-American descendants of slavery, and the recommendation for reparations.
