As our state has battled the coronavirus pandemic, another battle, for racial equality and justice, has raged in the streets. Over the last year, people from all across the world have joined together in the call for an end to police brutality and racial injustice. In our state, Hoosiers have been active in calling for an end to systemic racism, and our caucus agrees that the time for police reform is long past due. With unrest continuing to persist throughout our country, it’s imperative that our state steps up next session to approve meaningful legislation that will address and begin uprooting the racism and injustice that exists in our criminal justice system. Specifically, our caucus will support the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus Agenda, with the biggest priorities being banning no-knock warrants and chokehold maneuvers.
