The House Oversight and Reform Committee held a virtual briefing with a group of sociall justice advocates and scholars to discuss police reform. Several members acknowledged the Juneteenth holiday and George Floyd, a Black man whose death while in custody of Minneapolis police officers sparked protests nationwide. Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) told the committee that violent White supremacy was the “real deep state” in America. Representative Ayanna Pressley (D) stressed in her opening remarks that legislative policies and the budget must value Black lives. Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH) said the debate over defunding the police by some members was an “insane public policy proposal.” Other topics focused on systemic racism in policing, the inclusion of Black women in the discussion on police brutality, and the role of police unions. close
