Rep. Kuster unveils Opportunity, Justice for All Agenda
CONCORD – U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02) unveiled her “Opportunity and Justice for All” Agenda, which highlights legislation that she is supporting to address institutional racism and help create a more just society for all Americans. The agenda was drafted following the Congresswoman’s conversations and consultations with police and civil rights leaders in light of the tragic deaths of people of color at the hands of law enforcement.
“Our nation has a long, painful history of racial inequality and discrimination that touches nearly every aspect of our society,” said Rep. Kuster. “From health disparities and a lack of access to affordable housing to police brutality and disproportionate numbers of Black Americans killed at the hands of law enforcement — injustice is pervasive throughout our communities, and we must work to address it. My Opportunity and Justice for All Agenda includes bills that have been introduced in Congress to help our nation right some of the wrongs of our past, dismantle inequalities that permeate our culture, and create a more just society for all Americans.”
