Reflecting on Black History Month, Amanda Gorman
This Black History Month, I'm reflecting on the words of Ms. Amanda Gorman.
The Legislature is working to create a Washington that is inclusive, fair, and representative for Black Americans. We're considering bills to ensure safer police tactics, to restore voting rights to people who have served their time in prison, and to provide law enforcement with stronger tools to address hate crimes.
And we are finally considering a bill to give Juneteenth the recognition it deserves as a state holiday.
I am proud of the work we've done to write laws...
