The United States Senate is taking action against racism.

They unanimously agreed Wednesday to make lynching a federal hate crime.

In a tweet, Democratic Senator Kamala Harris called the passing of the justice for victims of lynching act a historic moment.


Lawmakers have tried for more than a century to make lynching a federal offense.

The bill was introduced earlier this year by Harris and the chamber's other two African-American senators Democrat Cory Booker and republican Tim Scott.
