Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights: “This bipartisan bill offers some important improvements to the current federal system, but it falls short of providing the meaningful change that is required.”
“Some have cautioned us to wait and see, to give the new Administration a chance, but we know that’s a mistake. We won’t sit idly by as people threaten the safety and quality of life of Black people across the country.”
Color Of Change’s Brandi Collins “It is clear the Department of Homeland Security and FBI are continuing their disturbing legacy of employing secretive surveillance tactics with murky legal parameters to chill The Movement for Black Lives.”
In somewhat of a pivot from their usual work, The Movement for Black Lives activists went to Capitol Hill yesterday to lobby individual U.S. representatives and senators on a range of Black economic and criminal justice issues.
