Today, I voted to stop Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's weak attempt at policing reform.

I was proud to stand with my friends Senator Cory Booker and Senator Kamala Harris to say we need to do better than start a debate with the deficient and limited bill proposed by Senate Republicans. At a time when people of all ages, races, and views across America are demanding real action on accountability and racism, the Republicans wanted to bring a bill to the Senate floor that doesn't even ban chokeholds outright.

That's wrong, and it's no way to address a national crisis. Instead, the Senate should start its debate by taking up a bill that includes real reforms on accountability, racial profiling, and transparency, and ends excessive force.

I hope the Senate gets the chance to act on that kind of bill soon, but Senator McConnell's bill is no way to meet this moment in our country's history.
