Congressman Al Green, a lifelong champion of civil rights, discusses his legislative priorities – the “Conscience Agenda,” which consists of five pieces of legislation dedicated to aiding in the elimination of invidious discrimination within the United States. These bills would: establish a Slavery Remembrance Day, award a Congressional Gold Medal to the American enslaved, require disclosure of financial companies’ historical connections to slavery, remove the name of Richard Russell from the Russell Senate Office Building, and create a Cabinet-level Department of Reconciliation to develop a national strategy of eliminating all forms of invidious discrimination.
