A message from Senator Kamala D. Harris


Now is the Time to Act. The People are Demanding it.

Watch Senator Harris unveil her Justice in Policing Act.



People from every age, race, gender, and religion have been coming together for weeks to speak out against police brutality toward Black Americans. They are marching for justice. And this movement gives me hope that change is coming.

The United States Senate has a duty to be fully aware of our country’s history of systemic racism, and a responsibility to take swift and serious action toward achieving America’s founding ideal of Equal Justice Under Law.

It’s time for us to realize — this is not just a moment, but a movement. We can begin to meet the demands of this movement by passing my Justice in Policing Act

Some of what my Justice in Policing Act will do: 

  • Ban chokeholds and no-knock warrants in drug cases
  • Establish a national use of force standard
  • End qualified immunity for police
  • Expand pattern and practice investigations
  • Establish a National Police Misconduct Registry

The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others must be met with decisive action, and the Justice in Policing Act is the beginning of establishing national standards and accountability for police departments. 

We’ve seen enough death. We’ve had enough commissions. We've had enough studies. We've convened enough leaders. We've had enough conversations. Now is the time to act. The people are demanding it.

Take care,

Kamala D. Harris
United States Senator

On Tuesday, Senator Harris called for the passage of the Justice in Policing Act during a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on police use of force. Last week, Senator Harris and Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) introduced the Justice in Policing Act, comprehensive legislation to address the national police brutality crisis. Senator Harris laid out the key provisions of the legislation, including implementing a national use of force standard and expanding independent investigations into police misconduct. In her remarks, she addressed America’s history of systemic racism and called on her colleagues to fulfill their elected duty to take serious action on police reform.
