The road to justice
We need to keep speaking this fundamental truth: Black lives matter.
As we continue to seek justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless other Black Americans who have been killed at the hands of law enforcement officials, I wanted to provide an update on the key legislative action items that my colleagues and I are working to pass in Congress:
Together with the Congressional Black Caucus, I am focused on a broad package of bills that will address systemic racism and discrimination, stamp out police brutality and excessive use of force, increase transparency and police accountability, and demilitarize local law enforcement agencies.
One thing is certain – we must ensure that the passion and urgency being expressed on our streets is felt in the halls of Congress.
If you have other ideas for policies that Congress should consider, I want to hear from you. Please call my office, send us an email, or message me on social media. Together, I know we will achieve true justice and equality.
As always, if you have any questions, or need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to contact my office at 303-844-4988. Or you can visit my website at DeGette.house.gov to learn more about all of the different ways that my staff and I are available to assist you.
