Civil Rights

As a lifelong fighter for civil rights, I am committed to sponsoring and advancing legislation in Congress that will uphold and advance civil rights and equality for all Americans.

In the 117th Congress, I am proud to be the lead sponsor of the Emmett Till Antilynching Act, which would make lynching a federal hate crime for the very first time, as well as the COINTELPRO Full Disclosure Act, which would require the full, public release of files related to former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's nefarious COINTELPRO surveillance program.
