On June 16, the eve of five year mark of the Emanuel AME church shooting in Charleston, Rep. JA Moore, who lost his sister in the attack, believes nothing has fundamentally changed to dismantle systemic racism in the United States since then.
“After my sister and eight others were killed, we took down a flag,” Rep. Moore said.
Following the murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis and the protests that followed, Rep. Moore has made a series of proposals to address injustices in South Carolina, known as the “Moore Justice Agenda.”
The proposals include:
-Making the police force look reflective of the community in terms of race and gender
-Incentivizing police officers to live in the communities they police through tax incentives and low interest loan programs.
-Ending the 1033 program to demilitarize the police.
