Democrat 2020 candidates tout their progressive platforms during the National Action Network conference in New York.
Day three of the event kicked off Friday, and included top Democrats including Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, and Bernie Sanders.
Many spoke out on their support for a bill sponsored by Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson, which would form a commission to look into whether black Americans could receive reparations for slavery.
“I firmly support Congresswoman Jackson Lee’s bill to create a commission to study reparations, said Gillibrand. “As president, I would advocate to Congress to pass that bill and I would sign that commission into law.”
This as 2020 candidates like Kamala Harris continue to push further Left, in an apparent effort to win votes from progressive members of the party.
