This applies to all children – no matter what they look like or where they grow up. I’m proud to join my colleagues in introducing the Second Chance For Justice package to narrow the pipeline of children entering the criminal justice system. 2/2
After decades of increasingly punitive and failed juvenile justice policies, it’s time to take a step in a direction that recognizes that children have enormous potential for rehabilitation, change, and growth, and that we can do better to meet their developmental needs. 1/
Thank you, @RepCardenas, @RepKarenBass, and @CoryBooker, for leading the #SecondChanceforJusticePackage. We commend your continued leadership in the fight for equity and bringing justice to systems-impacted youth. @sparkaction #youthjustice

As our schools reopen we must do everything in our power to protect our communities against COVID-19 & put our children's health first. Huge TY to @CrystalStairsLA for co-hosting today's vaccination event & @RepKarenBass for helping to stress the importance of getting vaccinated.

The goal of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act is to provide accountability. @RepKarenBass joins @Bakari_Sellers to discuss why the bill is important and how the reforms aren't as anti-police as many people think.

I hope these convictions bring the friends and family of Gemmel Moore, Timothy Dean, and others, whose names we may never know, a small bit of comfort and peace. 5/5
Thank you to the community that tirelessly sought justice — especially activists like Jasmyne Cannick — and to the courageous victims and survivors who shared their stories and spoke their truth. 4/
Timothy Dean might be alive today and so many others wouldn’t have had to be subjected to Ed Buck’s violently racist traumatic abuse if justice had been served. 3/
It is an absolute tragedy he was allowed to continue to prey on vulnerable, young Black men and that he wasn't arrested and stopped immediately after he killed Gemmel Moore. 2/
FINALLY murderer Ed Buck is convicted after mountains of evidence, including 2,400 videos on his computers and phones, were brought to light. 1/…
After decades of underinvestment, our roads, bridges, transit, and rail are in trouble. Congress must step up to answer the call. The #INVESTAct will fix our ailing infrastructure AND transform it for the future.
We need a permanent solution NOW. Congress must provide a pathway to citizenship. It can’t wait.…

I offer my condolences to the people of Haiti on the assassination of President Moïse. Those responsible for this unthinkable act of violence should be brought to justice. It is important that all parties involved find peaceful solutions to their political differences.
In addition to celebrating today, we must continue to fight for a country in which everyone is free and everyone is equal. Happy July 4th!
This morning I voted YES on our transportation and water infrastructure bill focused on improving and repairing roads, bridges, transit and rail, and ensuring clean drinking water.…
The United States House of Representatives has twice passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act – the first time was one year ago today. We have to get this bill to the President’s desk. 2/2
Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd in broad daylight and acted with impunity. The sentencing today represents progress but there is still a long way to go. Accountability for murdering an unarmed Black man should not come as a surprise, it should be expected. 1/
Proud of my friend @HampDellinger for being nominated to be the next Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy at the Department of Justice. He’s a man of great character and I look forward to working with him as he pushes for greater diversity in the judiciary.…

Part of addressing these impacts is understanding the honest history of this country, which is what makes today so important. Happy #Juneteenth!
Slavery to this day is talked about and discussed as an institution of the distant past -- a mistake that our country has made right and fixed. But the truth is, the legacy of slavery lives on and has shaped, in part, the world we live in today. 2/
For centuries, the sometimes dark history of this country has been sanitized or even flat-out denied. Some state legislative bodies are actively trying to continue those efforts as we speak. 1/
It was an honor to watch @POTUS sign the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act into law yesterday.

Looking forward to participating in this important discussion!…
9 years ago, DACA was created to protect young people who have known only this country as their home. We must get the Dream & Promise Act and the #USCitizenshipAct signed into law.
Proud to introduce the Community-Based Response Act with @ChrisVanHollen today. Many crisis situations don’t require a police response. This bill will provide new community-based alternatives.
600,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the United States. Absolutely devastating. Absolutely unacceptable.
Five years ago, we suffered the deadliest attack affecting the LGBTQ+ community in our history. Within minutes, Pulse Nightclub turned from a place of acceptance and joy to a place of unspeakable pain. As we remember those we lost, we must recommit to honoring them with action.
