We are complicit if we leave this moment and don’t demand change.
I started this year unaware of how critical my legislative package would be to the zeitgeist of this moment. A manageable load of 10 bills at the start of the legislative session shifted skeletal in response to COVID-19 and the impending budget challenges. I decided to focus on the few bills that address our most pressing need — systemic change. After the events of these past weeks, our collective goal should be to turn these bills into law and maintain a steady conversation about the difficult truths of inequality.
