On the heels of the anniversary of the murder of George Floyd, I am in full support of the Biden administration taking these important steps in police reform and accountability across the country, and keeping it at the forefront of our collective efforts.
I just signed an Executive Order that delivers the most significant police reform in decades. It will increase accountability, ban chokeholds, restrict no-knock entries, and more for federal law enforcement officers — and it incentivizes state and local officers to do the same.

The criminal justice reforms needed require all levels of government to take deliberate action, and Chicago is committed to doing our part.

My family & I are sending prayers to the entire Uvalde community & the families that sent their child to school today unaware that they would not be coming home. As a nation, we simply cannot allow this to continue. 🧵2/4

Every single day, children & young people are losing their lives to people who do not value the sanctity of life & take advantage of the unabated presence of firearms in our communities. 🧵3/4

Now more than ever, we must push our legislators to pass sweeping & effective gun control measures. Our children’s lives depend on it.

3 years in, we've worked with @chicagosmayor to expand services for survivors of gender-based & sexual violence. Knowing these survivors are some of the most overlooked & underserved populations, our work has allowed us to continue to reduce barriers for vulnerable people.
