Rick Larsen for Congress

 

Continuing our work

I am heartbroken over the murder of George Floyd. Too many families are victims of racial violence and it is beyond time for a change.

Today, I joined the Congressional Black Caucus and House Judiciary Committee in supporting the Justice in Policing Act to bring reforms to police departments and hold police accountable. And last week, I signed on to co-sponsor Rep. Ayanna Pressley's resolution condemning police brutality, racial profiling, and the excessive use of force.

I will continue to work with local, state, and federal leaders to take action to address issues facing communities of color.

Demonstrations throughout our region have been an outpouring of support for ending racial injustice and police brutality. I joined a Black Lives Matter rally in Everett this weekend to listen and show my support.

I also went live on Facebook last week with State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski. During our conversation, we addressed the pain our country is experiencing and the need to elect candidates who are committed to taking action.

We also held several virtual phone banks last week. I called into the 38th, 10th and 42nd Legislative Districts to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot. Our communities need elected leaders who will take action to combat systemic racism.

Thank you to the volunteers who joined us last week. If you would like to join our team, sign up right here. You can also add your name to the list of 60 local elected officials and many groups who have endorsed our campaign, and email jack@ricklarsen.org for a yard sign if you don't already have one.

I will continue to work hard to earn your support, and to continue fighting racial injustice.

Together,

Rick
