An Apology for Slavery
+++++++++++++++++++++++
By Jim Wallis

On Monday, Congressman Tony Hall of Ohio called
on Congress to apologize for slavery. That's right,
apologize. Say we were wrong; say we're sorry. I
stood with Tony Hall and Rep. John Lewis of
Georgia, along with a handful of other clergy,
near the East Steps of the U.S. Capitol building as
he made the historic announcement.

Tony Hall is known for asking not what's in it for
him but rather what's the right thing to do. And
he discovered, to his surprise, that the United
States government had never apologized for slavery.
In recent years, Hall pointed out, there have been
many public apologies. Congress has apologized to
Japanese Americans for imprisoning them during the
Second World War, and to native Hawaiians for helping
overthrow the Kingdom of Hawaii a century ago.

Other countries have also apologized. Britain's
prime minister apologized to the Irish people for
failing to relieve the 19th century potato famine;
East Germany apologized for the Holocaust, Japan's
emperor apologized for atrocities in Korea. And
in recent years, many religious leaders and bodies
have apologized for slavery--the pope, the Southern
Baptists, and the Methodists. The state of
Florida has both apologized and paid reparations
to victims of a race riot in the city of Rosewood.

Hall said he was amazed when his research in the
Library of Congress revealed that the U.S.
government had never apologized for enslaving
millions of people, tearing them from their families,
killing, torturing, beating, and brutalizing fellow
human beings. He said an apology provides the
foundation for a new beginning, and that such an
apology should not be "wasted." Restoration, even
some kind of restitution, and genuine healing
should follow, the representative said.

When Tony Hall introduced a similar bill into
Congress three years ago, he was "taken aback"
by the hate mail he got. But he has persisted.
"Apologizing is humbling," he said, "but the
United States should be big enough to admit its
mistakes." Hall honestly admitted the resolution
will not "fix" the lingering legacy of slavery,
but that reconciliation always begins with an
apology and this one could be the start of
some still-needed healing between the people
of this country.

The white member of Congress from Ohio said,
"This apology will not solve all of the problems,
but it will begin new progress on issues that still
divide Americans. It's never too late to admit a
wrong and to ask forgiveness. In giving those our
nation has wronged the dignity of this honest
admission, we might all enjoy some measure of
healing. And it will set the right example for
our children."

I expect Tony Hall will be getting some more
letters.

Stopping deforestation of the Amazon

Sent by SojoMail reader Gavin White:

The Brazilian congress is now voting on a project
that will reduce the Amazon forest to 50 percent
of its size. The area to be deforested is 4 times the
size of Portugal and would mainly be used for
agriculture and pastures for livestock. All the
wood is to be sold by multinational companies
to international markets in the form of woodchips.

The truth is that the soil in the Amazon forest
is useless without the forest itself. Its quality
is very acidic and the region is prone to constant
floods. At this time more than 160,000 square kilometers
deforested with the same purpose are abandoned and
in the process of becoming deserts.

Don't let this happen. Copy and paste the text
above into a new e-mail, put your complete name in the

I regularly receive your excellent SojoMail, which
I always find informative and envisioning. I was
wondering if you would be able to give me some advice.

I am in the process of sounding out the possibility
of working for an organisation called ISAAC, which
is The International Substance Abuse and Addiction
Coalition - a Network of Drug Rehab Centers and
programs with a Christian basis, including European, U.S.
(eg Ron Ross, Frank Costatino, ICCR), Eastern block,
Asian, Middle Eastern, South American.....in fact,
truly global.

The aims are to standardise excellence by using the
best programs as the basis for training courses and
to put resources of all kinds into the hands of the
neediest, thereby putting Christians at the forefront
of the response to drugs worldwide.

My role would be to find the funding for training
courses and centers (there is already a center in
Egypt) and to train other to gain funds for their
programs, enabling lives to be changed.

Before I can do this role, however, I need my own
funds, as ISAAC has a policy of having no central
resources or paid staff. Do you know of any bodies
that would be interested in resourcing this role
from the States? More details can be sent to anyone
who would like them.

Please help; this need is urgent and could make
a huge difference to a large number of lives that
are otherwise being destroyed by the worldwide
plague of drug abuse.

A recent(ish) SojoMail message said: "Jim Wallis

Sorry to be a little sensitive on the subject,
but I am annoyed by the assumption of so many

unsolicited) that the Internet user is American
by definition. Five years ago this may have been
reasonable. 'Tain't so now. A third of Britain is

out that the man did not come to a city within an
Atlantic's width of me, not on his recent tour anyway.

PLEASE dispel the myth that if you're on the Internet
you have to be American. It feels like the kind of
cultural imperialism with which half the world has
to do battle - and of which one would expect Sojourners
to be more aware than most Americans. Some of us still

New study on digital access...

The biggest Internet use gap in the U.S. exists

Mouse saves trees: the law of cyber-ecology

EcologyFund.com is a click-to-donate wilderness
based on the Hunger Site model (remember the Boomerang
debate about that one lasting nearly a month?!).

Last week the site's organizers announced that its
users have donated more than 50 million square feet of
rainforest and wilderness land since February.
Projects on EcologyFund protect critical wilderness
areas and wildlife habitat from development, thus
preserving these environments for future generations.

It costs nothing for site visitors to click-to-save
389 square feet of wild land per day. Users who visit
the site daily make the most dramatic impact. Their
donations add up to more than 1/4 acre of wilderness
land saved each month.

How does it work? Visitors to EcologyFund raise funds
by clicking on the "donate" button for each of the
four projects: Patagonia Coastal Reserve, American
Wilderness, Amazon Basin Rainforest, and the recently
added Canadian Wild Lands. The visitor then views a
page of sponsor banner ads.

Site sponsors pay a per-view fee each month to the
individual non-profit land preservation groups. One
hundred percent of the sponsors' payments go to
EcologyFund's non- profit partners. Currently, the
World Land Trust based in the U.K., the Wilderness
Land Trust based in the U.S., and the Nature
Conservancy of Canada are official partners of
EcologyFund and have projects benefiting from the site.
