Representative Joyce Beatty was honored to commemorate Juneteenth at home in Ohio’s Third Congressional District. Earlier this month, Rep. Beatty introduced House Resolution 990, a resolution that recognizes racism as a ‘national crisis’ and calls for truth and reconciliation for Congress and the country to undertake.
Rep. Beatty also joined colleagues Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee and Rep. Marc Veasey in introducing resolutions that recognize the historical significance and continued celebration of Junteenth and commemorate this historic day by calling for safeguards to protect the integrity of U.S. elections and end voter suppression.
Next week, Rep. Beatty is going back to Washington to address the problems caused by the Coronavirus pandemic and justice in policing. She will continue to stand up for the district, give back to the community, and get things done.
