Rep.Lewis Joins Rep.Johnson to Produce Mega-Job Fair


Washington might not be working on trying to help Atlantans find jobs, but Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson are. In conjunction with the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Lewis and Johnson joined forces to try to host the most comprehensive job fair this year. In response to skyrocketing unemployment in the African American community on top of high national averages, the CBC decided to launch the “For the People” Jobs Initiative to raise awareness and built support for H. Res. 348, which calls on Congress to pass more than 40 bills proposed by the CBC to help alleviate the ...


Rep. Hank Johnson: Regaining Prosperity… and Protecting It


I am so pleased to see The Huffington Post inaugurating its Black Voices site, and I appreciate the opportunity to contribute in its first week.

To create jobs, we need smart and bold investments that put people back to work today and sustain opportunity in the future -- investments in infrastructure, energy, education, science and technology.

Congressman Johnson calls for full disclosure after report detailing the assassination of slain Honduran activist
“The troubling report by the International Advisory Group of Experts (GAIPE), indicates a pattern and suggests that the botched investigation into Berta Caceres’s murder is not an isolated incident,” said Congressman Hank Johnson, who re-introduced the “Berta Caceres Human Rights in Honduras Act” in March of this year. The “Berta Caceres Human Rights in Honduras Act” would suspend U.S. funding to the Republic of Honduras for their police and military operations, until the Honduran government demonstrates an ability to root out corruption and human rights abuse within its military and civilian security forces, and successfully prosecute and  those responsible for the killings of Honduran human rights activists.  “I want to see The Public Ministry conduct this investigation in a professional manner with the aim of holding accountable those responsible for Berta Caceres’s murder. We cannot stand by and continue to supply security assistance and multilateral loans
Congressman Johnson makes progress with Television Academy for diversity
Following the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sept.17, Congressman Hank Johnson, a founding member of the Congressional Caucus for Advancement of Studio, Talent and Film Diversity, was inspired to write a letter to the Television Academy in hopes of addressing the lack of diversity and misrepresentation of Latino actors winning this prestigious award. “Equal rights for others is something I have always felt strongly about and will continue to fight for,” said Congressman Johnson, who also serves as a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee. “I congratulate the Television Academy for the work they have done to acknowledge achievements by minorities both in front and behind the camera. But there is still more work to be done; particularly with regard to Latino actors.” “Mr. Maury McIntyre, who is President and COO of the Television Academy, called me immediately after reading my letter and acknowledged the problem,” said Congressman Johnson. “Research shows that on
New Ag Guestworker Program Legislation Headed To US House
A bill to overhaul the federal agricultural guestworker program cleared its first hurdle Wednesday and is headed to the full U.S. House. The Republican-majority House Judiciary Committee passed the bill 17-16 after two days of debate and over the objections of many Democrats. It’s likely to clear the House, though its future in the Senate is unclear. But Democrats countered during the debate that the legislation would lower pay, displace workers who are American citizens and weaken protections for immigrant laborers. “This is setting up a permanent second class of persons in the United States,” U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Georgia, says, adding later, “The whip of oppression is in the hand of the man. The man is not really the farmer, the man is the staffing agency that recruits the workers.” Read More

They should be commended and we owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude. But law enforcement officers are not above the law and should be held accountable like anyone else.” The Cooling Off Period Elimination Act of 2017 or the COPE Act, H.
