Faith & Freedom Coalition Commends President Trump’s Race and Policing Roundtable
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Faith and Freedom Coalition commends President Trump for holding a roundtable on race and policing in Texas on June 11, 2020. The roundtable was attended by local religious leaders, small business owners and law enforcement. The president reaffirmed an announcement that the White House would soon release an executive order on policing standards and reminded listeners of the fundamental goodness of the American people.
“We commend the president for tackling this issue head-on,” said Timothy Head, executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition. “In the eyes of God, all humans are equal and deserving of justice. We call on all patriotic Americans to demand a justice system where all human beings are equal under the law and equally protected by law enforcement.”
Five policy highlights emerged from the roundtable discussion. First, the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council will refocus its efforts to strengthen health, education and economic outcomes in underserved communities. Second, the White House plans to increase Opportunity Zones so that more economically disadvantaged communities are included in the program and expand access to Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding.
Third, the administration will partner with Congress to address health care disparities in minority communities. Fourth, the president will build on the smart-on-crime approach to policing codified in the First Step Act by releasing an executive order on best practices on hiring, training and other aspects of law enforcement. Fifth, the president will work to create educational and workplace development opportunities, such as increased relief for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and second-chance Pell grants for formerly incarcerated individuals.
