Today marks the one year of the tragic passing of George Floyd. President Biden is set to meet with his family to discuss the continued congressional negotiations over police reform legislation. The meeting is to set the laws for the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which would enforce “legislation that would set up a national registry of police misconduct, ban racial and religious profiling by law enforcement and overhaul qualified immunity for police officers,” according to CNN.
The bill is currently still on hold in the Senate though Biden had it scheduled so that legislation passed it by Tuesday. Floyd died on May 25, 2020, after former police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for more than nine minutes.
