The Charmed actress is seemingly less concerned about performing on screen than she is about changing national policies. After two Democrats won the Georgia Senate runoff races, she took to social media to tweet out her legislation wish list.
Milano has been a regular detractor of President Trump and Twitter cheerleader for the liberal left, particularly throughout the 2020 Presidential Election. After Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock beat their Republican opponents to give the Democrats the Senate majority, Milano urged, “Organizers of color and voters of color continue to save the republic.”
In a Wednesday night tweet, she stated that “Democrats need to pass” the following bills ASAP: The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, The Anti-Racism in Public Health Act, The Breathe Act and the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020.
The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act seeks to restore a provision in the 1965 Voting Rights Act that would allow the federal government to regulate new election laws in states and local jurisdictions, which was reversed in a 2013 Supreme Court decision.
The Anti-Racism in Public Health Act calls for the creation of a “National Center for Anti-Racism” at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to research the impact of racism on health and create anti-racism centers to educated the public.
The Breathe Act, which is a response to the death of George Floyd, would transform the criminal justice system by expunging drug crimes, closing prisons, shuttering several federal agencies, and eliminating life sentences in prison.
The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020 would make law enforcement officers more susceptible to criminal prosecution for intentional and reckless misconduct, along with requiring more training for police officers.
