MELANIE CAMPBELL, PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL COALITION ON BLACK CIVIC PARTICIPATION & BLACK WOMEN’S ROUNDTABLE CONVENER, RELEASES STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT BIDEN’S EXECUTIVE ORDER BOLSTERING POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY

Washington, D.C. (May 25, 2022) -- Melanie L. Campbell, President & CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP) and Convener of the Black Women’s Roundtable (BWR) issued the foll

“As we observe the second anniversary of the death of George Floyd at the hands of a racist police officer in Minnesota, I want to thank President Biden for using his power of Executive Authority to bolster police accountability in this nation. The order, which will create national accreditation standards, a database for problem officers and incentives to ban chokeholds and no-knock warrants, is a tremendous first step in protecting all citizens, but especially those of color. These efforts will enhance public trust and strengthen public safety. The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and Black Women’s Roundtable also actively supports and encourages the President to continue his fight for the eventual passage of the ‘George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.’ Only then will we begin to truly feel safe in our own communities."
