The head of the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus says their agenda will help address Indianapolis’ rising murder and crime rates.

In 2020, the city saw 214 murders, a record year.  In addition, blacks who are only 30 percent of the city’s population were more than 70-percent of the murder victims.
