Reparations Philadelphia "Rep 215" is a Philadelphia alliance of advocates and organizations who support reparations and reparatory justice for Black Americans in the Delaware Valley.
Rep 215 invites academics, social service professionals, economic experts, members of the faith community, public officials, and everyday Philadelphians to bring about legislation that atones for the vestiges of government sanctioned racism against Black Americans in the United States.
Federal reparations has distinctions from regional and local levels of reparations, and Rep 215 does the work of clarifying those distinctions to establish the foundation for what Philadelphian's hyper-local repair needs are. Rep 215 is in part led by the N’COBRA PHL, the Philadelphia Chapter of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America, and brings the Philadelphia community at large into the reparations conversation and movement to establish a Reparations Commission, enforce Philadelphia’s existing Slavery Disclosure Ordinance, and restablish The Freedmen’s Bureau and an Office of Freedmen’s Affairs.
