Content Warning: this email discusses murder and police brutality.
We are both
heartbroken, horrified, and outraged by George Floyd’s execution by four
police officers in Minneapolis. Yet another Black man murdered by police.
In this moment, Congress must stop and listen to the people who are
hurting, and to the communities that have gone ignored for so long. That
is why we, in partnership with our sisters-in-service, Reps. Karen Bass
and Barbara Lee, introduced a resolution to condemn police brutality,
racial profiling, and the use of excessive force.
We need your help to make sure we have broad support for this powerfully
important resolution — and we must demand that leadership bring this
resolution to the floor for a vote.

support our fight for action by sending a letter to your representative in
the House urging them to co-sponsor our resolution. Participating in this
action will only take a few moments of your time, and it’s a critical step
on the path to justice.

Black people in our country have been brutalized, dehumanized, and
murdered for centuries — violence that continues today at the hands of the
police. It is past time for accountability, and for justice.
We will keep supporting the organizations on the ground in our communities
doing the work to organize and fight for justice, and we will continue the
struggle to end the systemic racism and bigotry that led to the deaths of
George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner,
Philando Castille, Tamir Rice, and so many others who should still be
alive today. That’s why we need widespread citizen support for this
resolution, and to bring it to the floor for a vote as soon as possible.

co-sponsor our resolution and push for a floor vote.

Thank you for taking action. Together, we will fight for accountability.
We will fight to dismantle systems of oppression. And we will keep up the
fight to protect Black lives.
