Led by Councilmembers Jamie Gauthier and Kendra Brooks, the task force aims to study Philadelphia’s role in the slave trade and develop proposals that help rectify the enduring impact on Black residents whose ancestors were enslaved. Philly residents can apply for eight open positions that cover economic justice, education, health and wellness, history, human services, criminal and legal justice, law and policy and urban planning.
