WE CAN HAVE A SENATE THAT WILL PASS ANTI-RACISM LEGISLATION
Following the murder of George Floyd, Democrats in Congress promised legislation to combat systemic racism in our country.
In June, the House passed The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. It would ban police chokeholds and no-knock warrants, add restrictions on the use of deadly force and make law enforcement more accountable.
The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act along with more than a dozen other anti-racism bills have been passed by the House or introduced in the Senate by Democrats. They’ve all been blocked by Mitch McConnell.
These bills would do things like:
hold law enforcement accountable for misconduct in court, improve transparency through data collection, and reform police training and policies
combat hate crimes and assist hate crime victims
advance the safety and well-being of immigrants and refugees
provide for public health research and investment into understanding and eliminating structural racism and police violence
end the racial disparities in COVID-19 testing, treatment, health outcomes, and vaccine access
make investments to end the obscenely high rate of preventable maternal mortality among Black women
