Statement by Angela Fobbs, Global Black Caucus Chair, and Julia Bryan, Democrats Abroad Global Chair
Justice has been delivered to George Floyd and his family, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief - for now.
We must take this moment to not only deliver justice for the dead but to protect the living. We must help make our country a place where we can all breathe freely, a place where the color of our skin does not put us at risk.
Philonise Floyd said after the verdict, "As an African American, we usually never get justice."
This inequality cannot stand.
The House has passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. It is time for the Senate to do so too. Democrats and Republicans must rise to the challenge of our times, unite our United States behind this issue, and transform policing in America.
Our moral compass is bending towards justice. It’s time to put policies in place to make this transformation complete. The time is now.
Take action now - contact your senators today and demand they support the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
