WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1) released the following statement on the anniversary of George Floyd’s death:

“As we mark one year since George Floyd’s murder, the Problem Solvers Caucus is continuing to lead bipartisan discussions to help repair the social contract between police departments and the communities to which they serve. Right now, we are working alongside Congresswoman Karen Bass, Senator Cory Booker, and Senator Tim Scott to build bipartisan, bicameral support for nationwide improvements to law enforcement department operations. We are united in recognizing that the overwhelming majority of our nation’s law enforcement carry out their duties with honor and integrity, and we know that they are ready and willing to help us make the critical changes we need.

Now, it is imperative that both sides of the aisle come together with the common goal of making our nation a better, safer, and more equitable place. Together, we believe that we will make meaningful change.”
