WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tuesday, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) and members of the Congressional Black Caucus issued the following statement on the public safety legislative package:

“Today, House Democrats, with the support of the Congressional Black Caucus, passed a comprehensive package to break the cycle of violence in our communities and advance public safety. Throughout this process, we have consulted with external groups and civil rights advocates, and their dedication to public safety has undoubtedly made this a better package.

"We know that improving our nation’s broken system of policing requires both resources and accountability measures. Thanks to the leadership of Congressional Black Caucus members and other House Democrats who have worked tirelessly on this issue, this package includes vital provisions for mental health, prioritizes the needs of victims, and will work to end the cycle of violence in our communities.

"At a time when Americans have genuine concerns about the reliability and effectiveness of our police, the American public can count on the Congressional Black Caucus to continue to push for public safety,” said Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty.
