Rep. Jamaal Bowman Hosts Forum On Black Men’s Issues

WASHINGTON, DC – FEBRUARY 02: Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) speaks at a news conference outside the U.S. Capitol Building on February 02, 2023 in Washington, DC.

“We focused on problems and solutions. Some of the problems were gun violence, lack of housing, education, and many others,” Bowman said. “Some of the solutions involve investing in historically under-invested communities, bringing jobs, bring affordable housing and entrepreneurship.”
Bowman has been active in addressing issues relating to Black men and, more broadly, Black people since he was elected as New York’s representative, and this forum is just another example of his commitment to progressive ideals.

Bowman has been pushing the Oligarch Act to address rampant income inequality in America, which he describes as a racial and economic justice issue. He has also authored legislation, the Fair College Admissions Act, which prohibits institutions participating in federal student aid programs from using legacy admissions when considering prospective students.

On a more personal level, Bowman has made headlines for his confrontational brand of resistance to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s politics, which led the Trump-associated Congresswoman to play the “I felt threatened by a Black man” card in her public remarks about their now-viral disagreement. Bowman hosting an event like this feels like a natural outgrowth of the things he is concerned about, not only in his community but also in the country.
