PLBC outlines legislative agenda for systemic equity

(May 05, 2021)

HARRISBURG, May 5 – State House members of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus and supporters today outlined their legislative agenda for systemic equity at a Capitol news conference. Members spoke about bills that would resolve bias, create diversity and provide inclusion, bridging the racial divide and inequities in legislation, state government agencies and health care. “This agenda is a road map for changing the way we deliver services, distribute resources and otherwise do business in the Commonwealth in all matters so that everyone, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, or Zip code, will have the same access and the same expectation as residents of Pennsylvania,” said PLBC Chair and state Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila. “The inequities in health care, housing and employment that were exacerbated by the pandemic are not new. They are systemic and often rooted in generations of racism. To address these systemic inequities, we have to remove stigmas, address implicit bias, and invest in systemic equity in ways that provide fair and equitable access to wealth, health, safety and more. We cannot continue doing things as we’ve done in the past and expect the outcome to be different. I have said that before, it still holds true and will continue to be true until we make substantial changes. We won’t relent until we see these changes.” “I truly appreciate the leadership of PLCB Chairwoman Bullock to keep us Read more

FOLSOM, March 18 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger, D-Delaware, today issued the following statement regarding allegations of abuse at the Delaware County Juvenile Justice Center: “News of abuse at the Delaware County Juvenile Justice Center is appalling and heartbreaking. As a society, we have a responsibility to keep every kid safe. And, as a mother, I believe every parent has a right to know that their child will be cared for, even in the most vulnerable situations. When children find the courage to speak their truths, we must believe them. This matter must be investigated, and I am thankful to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who has committed to do so.” Read more

This week's bill is an effort to get it back on track for the May primary ballot and deliver justice to survivors. Read more
