A summary of the act:

Create a commission to study reparations

Allowing local and state resident voting for illegal immigrants

Abolish police gang databases, as well as armed cops and metal detectors in school

Decriminalize and retroactively expunge both state and federal drug offenses

Develop a "time-bound plan to close all federal prisons and immigration detention centers"

End cooperation with immigration authorities

Develop curricula that examine the political, economic, and social impacts of colonialism, native genocide, and slavery

Provide lifetime education for illegal immigrants and the currently incarcerated

Divesting from agencies like the DEA and ICE as well as moving federal resources away from incarceration and policing

End life sentences and mandatory minimum sentences

Pilot programs for universal basic income





Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts announced the act in July, but it has not been brought before Congress.

“The BREATHE Act is a legislative love letter to Black people,” BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors wrote in an op-ed for Teen Vogue on Thursday.

Black Lives Matter activists are pressuring Democrats to embrace the BREATHE Act, which includes a section requiring a “roadmap for prison abolition.”

Cullors, who has written a letter to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris requesting a meeting, told The Hollywood Reporter she is requesting that the new administration work to pass the BREATHE Act within the first 100 days. Cullors insisted in her letter to Biden and Harris that Black people “want to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized.”
