Members of George Floyd’s family on Tuesday will meet with lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), on the one-year anniversary of Floyd's murder in Minneapolis, CNN and NBC News report.

Why it matters: The meeting comes amid negotiations on a police reform bill named after Floyd that the House passed in March. The legislation has stalled in the Senate due to Republican opposition to certain provisions, including curbing qualified immunity for police officers.

Context: Rep. Bass is the lead House negotiator in talks over the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

The big picture: Congress is set to miss Biden’s self-imposed May 25 deadline for passing police reform legislation because of the negotiations, which have continued for weeks.

President Biden will meet privately with the family of George Floyd on Tuesday to mark the one-year anniversary of Floyd's murder, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Monday.

Why it matters: The White House meeting comes after Derek Chauvin was found guilty in Floyd's murder; a trial advocates saw as one of the most crucial civil rights cases in decades.

Members of George Floyd's family and civil rights leaders led a remembrance rally and march in his honor in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Sunday — the first of three days of activities marking the first anniversary of his death.

The big picture: The George Floyd Memorial Foundation, founded by his sister Bridgett Floyd, said in a statement it's to "demonstrate our continued call for accountability and reform, because the right to equal justice should not be conditional or based upon a person's color."

Minneapolis police reform stalls as violence in the city surges

In the city where George Floyd was murdered a year ago today, the calls to defund and dismantle the police have been drowned out by new calls to throw even more resources at the beleaguered department.

Driving the news: A surge in violence in the first half of 2021 has altered the conversation about policing in the city where the national protests against racism and police brutality began.
