Rep. David Trone Hosts Virtual Roundtable with Rep. Robin Kelly (IL-02) to Discuss Systemic Inequities in America

WASHINGTON, DC — Yesterday, U.S. Congressman David Trone (MD-06) hosted a virtual roundtable with Congresswoman Robin Kelly (IL-02) and community leaders to discuss some of the nation’s most pressing issues — from racial injustice and mass incarceration to the over-policing of communities of color.

The roundtable comes after months of social unrest following the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor.

“Yesterday, we came together and had a much-needed discussion about the systemic inequities that exist in our society today,” said Congressman David Trone. “I’d like to thank Congresswoman Kelly and the numerous leaders who shared their experiences and ideas about how we can create a more just and equitable society. Now, we take action.”

“I greatly appreciate Congressman David Trone organizing this important roundtable on justice and equity,” said Congresswoman Robin Kelly. “It was a privilege and pleasure to meet so many remarkable leaders and activists from the 6th District working to improve the lives of all families and communities. When it comes to our great struggle for justice and equity, the work is not done. We must keep fighting for a brighter future.”

A replay of the roundtable can be found here.

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Education and Labor, Foreign Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees, where he is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
