The NAI team is deeply troubled by systemic racism and violence against Black people, and in light of the inexcusable killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the role of police brutality that is sparking outrage in our country and across the world, we

NAI Statement on the Final Proposed Regulations for the CCPA
