We have an opportunity right now for real police reform. It's called the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.
The Justice in Policing Act is the first-ever bold, comprehensive approach to hold police accountable, end racial profiling, change the culture of law enforcement, empower our communities, and build trust between law enforcement and our communities by addressing systemic racism and bias to help save lives.
It would do the following:
1) establish a national standard for the operation of police departments;
2) mandate data collection on police encounters;
3) reprogram existing funds to invest in transformative community-based policing programs; and
4) streamline federal law to prosecute excessive force and establish independent prosecutors for police investigations.
It has already passed in the House of Representatives. Now it's up to the Senate to act.
