Letter Urging Passage of CAA Reform Before End of 115th Congress

In this sign-on letter, the ACLU and coalition partners urged Congressional leadership to quickly complete discussions updating and strengthening the procedures for reporting and responding to discrimination and harassment in the legislative workforce, and to pass the strongest version of legislation to reform the Congressional Accountability Act before the end of the 115th Congress. While both chambers of Congress have taken several steps to address harassment and discrimination in congressional workspaces, the most meaningful and lasting reforms remain unfinished. The letter urges Congress to pass a strong CAA reform bill that updates this critical law to provide a more equitable process for its workforce and to advance real transparency and accountability for Members of Congress.
