RNC Chair Joins 20/20 Leaders For Criminal Justice Reform Listening Session

- November 6, 2015

WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus joined the 20/20 Leaders of America (20/20 Club) for a listening session and roundtable discussion in Orlando, Florida. Community leaders including several elected officials, law enforcement officers, attorneys and business owners participated in the event. The discussion centered around core issues of importance to Black voters, with special attention to criminal justice reform. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus emphasized the Party’s commitment to engagement and belief that the Republican Party must address the concerns of voters in diverse communities.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said “I came to the I-4 corridor in Florida today to listen to leaders from black communities around the country and to learn more about how Republicans can build trust through leadership on issues of importance to black voters. We can and must grow our Party while making the country a better place for all to live.”

Ashley D. Bell, a 20/20 Club Co-Chair said “I am proud of Chairman Priebus' consistent leadership with black engagement and his willingness to build new relationships with leaders in our community. His support of 2020's mission to achieve equal justice under the law for all Americans is reflective of his heart and desire to bring the Republican party to the people.”

20/20 Club Co-Chair Brian Newman said “It is encouraging to see the Republican National Committee step up to join 2020, because we can no longer afford to get bogged down in the partisan bickering and political gamesmanship that has too often prevented us from addressing this national crisis.”

Bell and Brian Newman, the 20/20 Club is a diverse and bi-partisan organization consisting of elected officials, law enforcement, prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys, and community leaders from across the country working together to elevate issues disproportionately affecting communities of color.
