Legislation; Government; Disparities
Recently the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Commission on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys Act (S.2163/H.R. 1636) by a vote of 368-1. The bill, introduced by Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and co-sponsored by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), would establish a 19-member commission to examine the disproportionately social disparities that affect Black males in America.
