Sen. Booker Introduces Bill to Transfer Land to Black Farmers

Three Demo­c­rat sen­a­tors have intro­duced a bill that would reform the U.S. Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture and cre­ate a sys­tem of land grants to trans­fer mil­lions of acres to Black farm­ers at no charge.

Sen. Cory Book­er, D‑N.J., the lead spon­sor of the bill, tweet­ed Tues­day, “I’m proud to team up with @ewarren and @SenGillibrand to intro­duce the Jus­tice for Black Farm­ers Act. We need to bal­ance the scales after decades of sys­temic racism with­in @USDA have harmed Black farmers.”

The bill was announced on Nov. 19 by Book­er, Sen. Eliz­a­beth War­ren, D‑Mass., and Sen. Kirsten Gilli­brand, D‑N.Y., and is set to be released on Nov. 30.
