We’ve already been hard at work. The 2022 Approps bills that just cleared my committee included my specific requests to expand Baltimore’s 911 diversion program, bolster violence intervention initiatives at @shocktrauma + @LBHealth + support @livingclassroom @SafeStreetsBalt.
Today #TeamBaltimore + I joined @MayorBMScott as he unveiled #Baltimore’s historic Comprehensive Violence Prevention Plan. Our delegation is proud to support this new strategy + will continue to work with federal, state + local partners to cure violent crime in the City for good.
The increased focus on violence intervention programs is critical.
Just this week, I was proud to introduce the Senate version of the Bipartisan Solutions to Cyclical Violence Act (@Call_Me_Dutch) to increase federal resources for hospital-based violence intervention programs. https://twitter.com/MayorBMScott/status/1418583658286419975
Today I am proud to release the first ever Baltimore City Comprehensive Violence Prevention Plan at the Rose Street Community Center. Join us throughout the day as we roll out the 3 pillars of this monumental public safety strategy.
This is Baltimore history.
The Speaker made the right call. The point of this committee is to find the facts (wherever they lead) and the work of its members must be rooted in patriotism, not politics.
The violent domestic attack on Congress on #January6th was the worst assault on the Capitol since the War of 1812 & the worst domestic assault on American Democracy since the Civil War.
The future of our democracy is on the line.
Read My Full Statement:
My constituent @becca_meyers is a 3-time gold medalist + 2-time Paralympian. To deny her reasonable + essential accommodations to participate in the @Paralympics is shameful. I’m sending a letter to @USOPC_CEO @TeamUSA asking them to immediately reconsider this terrible decision.
.@AppropsDems priorities are clear:
The American people come first.
Not big corporations.
Not the wealthy.
The American people.
Not only is China engaging in cyber espionage + IP theft, it’s hiring cyber thugs to carry out the same financially-motivated crimes we’ve long accused Russia of supporting. I applaud @POTUS for holding foreign govts. accountable for these vicious attacks. https://bit.ly/36ON8pe
