Why We March? By the National Action Network

Why We March:

•We are calling on Congress to have hearings on police misconduct and brutality that will lead to legislation.

•We are calling for Congress to enact legislation to address the jurisdictional threshold regarding when Department Of Justice can investigate and/or prosecute cases of police misconduct.

•We are calling on Congress to appropriate additional funding for the Department of Justice to fund a designated division to address police misconduct and brutality.

•In the 1950’s and 1960’s, the Civil Rights Movement was enforced by Congress through legislation with the drafting and passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Civil Rights Act of 1965. We are calling on the current Congress to do what Congress has done in the past.

•We are calling on concrete actions by Congress that extend beyond this current Administration.
