[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) today introduced a bipartisan resolution with Congressman Trent Kelly (R-MS), Congressman Bennie Thompson (R-MS) and Congressman Gregg Harper (R-MS) honoring the 50th anniversary of James Meredith’s March Against Fear from Memphis, Tennessee to Jackson, Mississippi to encourage African Americans to register to vote. “James Meredith’s March Against Fear was a significant part of Memphis and civil rights history,” said Congressman Cohen. “Just after leaving Memphis to begin his courageous voting rights march from Memphis to Jackson, Meredith was ambushed and shot in North Mississippi. Subsequently, civil rights leaders quickly met at the Centenary United Methodist Church in Memphis to plan a resumption of the march.  They were aided by the church’s brilliant leader, Reverend James M. Lawson.  They were also aided by the Memphis chapter of the N.A.A.C.P. and civil rights leaders Maxine and Vasco Smith, Jesse Turner, Russ
Support for Bill to Address Police Shootings Continues to Grow
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – As a tragic week laced with deadly violence both against and by police draws to a close, support for a bill to help reform policing and restore trust continues to gain momentum in Congress.  On Friday, the number of cosponsors of the Police Training and Independent Review Act (H.R. 2302) grew to 70.  “This week has been tragic,” said Congressman Steve Cohen. “I grieve for the police officers who lost their lives in Dallas and my thoughts are with their families. I was a police legal advisor for more than three years and greatly respect the difficult and essential job that law enforcement does.  We must have police to have an open and safe society.” “I also continue to grieve for the victims in Louisiana and Minnesota.  We need a hearing in Congress and we need action.  The Police Training and Independent Review Act would help reform policing and restore trust by having independent reviews for police shootings.” Congressman Cohen spoke on the
Congressman Cohen’s Statement on the Passing of Elie Wiesel
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) released the following statement today on the passing of Elie Wiesel:  "I am saddened by the death of Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, one of the great moral forces in the world," said Congressman Cohen. "Elie Wiesel was in the same class as Nelson Mandela, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Congressman John Lewis. He was brilliant, pure, honest and courageous.  I met Elie Wiesel when I was a Tennessee State Senator and he was honored at Vanderbilt. He was the inspiration for me founding the Tennessee Holocaust Commission in 1987. I have a picture of him and me hanging in the foyer of my Washington, D.C. office. The photo was taken when he was honored at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis. I last saw him in June 2011 at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. His voice was strong and will be sorely missed. He was one of my heroes. Never forget."
Cohen Calls on Judiciary Committee to Hold Hearing on Police Training and Independent Review Act
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – In the wake of recent police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota, Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Liberties, today called on the House Judiciary Committee to hold a hearing on H.R. 2302 the Police Training and Independent Review Act. This legislation would help encourage states to use independent prosecutors to investigate and, if need be, prosecute police use of deadly force. It would also provide improved training for police officers. A video of Congressman Cohen’s remarks can be found here. “In the wake of the two most recent police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota, I call on Chairman Goodlatte to hold a hearing on the Police Training and Independent Review Act in the House Judiciary Committee,” said Congressman Cohen. “Both instances were caught on video and show white police officers killing black men.
