The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) requested a meeting with President Biden to discuss national reforms to the justice system, especially law enforcement conduct.

“The Congressional Black Caucus takes its role to advocate for the safety and protection of the people in our communities very seriously,” Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.), chairman of the CBC, said in a statement on Sunday.

Lawmakers condemned the “brutal and violent killing” of 29-year old Tyre Nichols, who died after being beaten by a group of Memphis, Tenn., police officers during a traffic stop earlier this month. Many lawmakers called for action, including revisiting the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, after the video the incident was released.

“CBC is requesting a meeting with the President this week to push for negotiations on much needed national reforms to our justice system – specifically, the actions and conduct of our law enforcement,” Horsford wrote in the letter to Biden.

“The brutal beating of Tyre Nichols was murder and is a grim reminder that we still have a long way to go in solving systemic police violence in America,” he added.

“No one in our nation should fear interacting with the police officers who serve our diverse communities, large and small,” Horsford concluded. “We all want to be safe. Many Black and brown people, however, and many young people in general, are justifiably afraid to interact with law enforcement officials.”
