Domestic Terrorism DATA Act Passes the House

This ensures that Congress receives necessary national security data from the federal government

September 27, 2019

On September 26th, the Domestic Terrorism DATA Act, H.R. 3106, passed the House. The bill, introduced to the House this past June by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), will protect communities already vulnerable to violent hate by improving Congressional oversight over federal counterterrorism procedures and mandating better research practices within the Department of Homeland Security. 

In our white paper on white supremacy, “The White Supremacist Threat to America,” we recommended that Congress support this bill. We applaud Congress passing this important bill, and we will continue to engage with lawmakers over other important legislative changes to ensure the safety and security of all vulnerable communities.
