Last Congress, the US House of Representatives passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to address the systemic racism and police brutality that have led to the murder of far too many Black people in America. Now, in the 117th Congress, the House will act again by passing this legislation and sending it to the Senate.
Among other provisions, this bill will prohibit racial profiling by law enforcement, ban chokeholds and no-knock warrants, limit the transfer of military-grade equipment to local law enforcement, increase accountability and transparency on police misconduct, invest in community public safety initiatives, and create new training programs to change the culture of law enforcement.
Ahead of House passage this week, the Office of the House Majority Leader is re-launching the popular JusticeInPolicing.us site to continue educating the public about the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Once again, Americans are encouraged to sign as citizen cosponsors, share their stories, and join in solidarity with the thousands of others who added their voices to this important and on-going national discussion.
