America Forward Statement: Justice in Policing Act of 2020

“Addressing the legacy of systemic racism, inequity, oppression, and unequal access to justice requires bold federal action. As a Coalition of over 100 high impact organizations working in 15,000 communities across the country to advance equity, increase opportunity, and achieve sustainable change, we recognize the urgent need for congressional action to end police brutality. America Forward believes the Justice in Policing Act of 2020 – introduced today by Representatives Karen Bass and Jerold Nadler, and Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris – is a crucial step towards vital and long-overdue policy changes to dismantle systems of oppression and end the violence against Black and brown people in our communities. We join advocates, activists, and community leaders across the country in calling on Congress to act swiftly to take up this critically important legislation.”
