I began this fight in 2014 when I stood up to the U.S. military’s policy that prohibited servicemembers from wearing natural hair, and I will continue until every woman and man is protected. With the CROWN Act, we can turn the page on forcing cultural norms that penalize Black people and other people of color from wearing their natural hair” External link

Barbara Lee said ( about Mark DeSaulnier ) : “As the daughter of a veteran, I am deeply grateful to our men and women in uniform, who make tremendous sacrifices in service to this nation. I am also proud to join with Rep. DeSaulnier in acknowledging the historic passage of this amendment that recognizes a dark moment in the history of our military and our nation. The 50 African American sailors at Port Chicago, who boldly stood against discrimination and refused to return to unsafe work conditions, should be remembered as heroes. The charges of mutiny levied against these service members was wrong. These brave men should be honored, not only for their pivotal role in the World War II home front effort but also for their courage in the face of injustice. The Port Chicago tragedy is another reminder of our nation’s history in devaluing black lives, and I proud to stand with Rep. DeSaulnier in the passage of this amendment to right this wrong, recognize the historic specter of discrimination and racism in the armed forces, and honor these men and their service,” External link

What’s more, the loss falls disproportionately on communities of color with the targeting of investments like payday lending, bail bonds, private college, and retail. This commonsense legislation will stop these abusive practices and ensure that no one gets left behind when a business fails” External link

Barbara Lee said ( about Mark DeSaulnier ) : “As the daughter of a veteran, I am deeply grateful to our men and women in uniform, who make tremendous sacrifices in service to this nation. I am also proud to join with Rep. DeSaulnier in acknowledging the historic passage of this amendment that recognizes a dark moment in the history of our military and our nation. The 50 African American sailors at Port Chicago, who boldly stood against discrimination and refused to return to unsafe work conditions, should be remembered as heroes. The charges of mutiny levied against these service members was wrong. These brave men should be honored, not only for their pivotal role in the World War II home front effort but also for their courage in the face of injustice. The Port Chicago tragedy is another reminder of our nation’s history in devaluing black lives, and I proud to stand with Rep. DeSaulnier in the passage of this amendment to right this wrong, recognize the historic specter of discrimination and racism in the armed forces, and honor these men and their service,” External link
