Congressional Black Caucus Chair Joyce Beatty called on the Senate to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act in a new statement released Tuesday.

Beatty named other Black Americans who were killed by the police in the last couple of years, including Breonna Taylor, Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, Andre Hill, Casey Goodson Jr., Ma’Khia Bryant and Tamir Rice.

"Unfortunately, nothing will ever bring them back or undo the unimaginable heartache and loss their family, friends, and our communities have had to endure, but we can turn agony into action," Beatty said in a statement. "The American people are demanding change, transparency, accountability, and equal justice."
