Washington, DC – Today, President Joseph Biden will sign a series of executive orders aimed at racial equity policy including prison reform, public housing, and nondiscrimination policy. Advancement Project National Office Executive Director Judith Browne Dianis issued the following statement addressing the executive actions:

“We acknowledge and commend the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to make racial equality a legislative priority and center piece to their agenda. The Biden-Harris Administration is recognizing that young people and people of color voted unapologetically for a transformative agenda on policing, voting rights, climate change, education and immigration. Advancement Project National Office urges that today’s action should only be the first step in dismantling institutions of systemic racism and transforming them. One of the crises we face as a nation is racism. Today’s action pushes the reset button on some of the Trump Administration’s most harmful policies on housing and private prisons. Still, to truly tear down systems of oppression, the Biden-Harris Administration must do more to address mass incarceration in public prisons and ICE-led detention centers—not only private prisons. We must continue to hold this administration accountable and demand bold and innovative solutions to address racial inequity.”
