A bipartisan package of police reform bills are in the state Senate. Advocates are aiming for a broader approach to major systemic failures in policing. But the sponsors of these bills say incremental progress may be fundamental progress in 2021. But does it go far enough? Today, we’ll hear from two state Senators, who are Black, about what’s in the proposed legislation and where their expectations stand.


Democratic Senator Adam Hollier represents District 2, including Detroit, Grosse Pointe, Hamtramck, Harper Woods, Highland Park.

Democratic Senator Erica Geiss represents District 6, including many of Downriver towns: Taylor, Romulus, Rockwood and some surrounding cities.
