Kerry Peay is a member of The Law Enforcement and Legislative Reform Committee of the North Carolina Democratic Party Progressive Caucus. This Committee consists of five core members and other contributors from across North Carolina to talk about ways to making law enforcement better. This Committee formed in the aftermath of George Floyd's and Breonna Taylor's deaths.
These members hoped that their solutions could be eventually turned into public policy. None of the members, Kerry included, believed that their work would lead to a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. But that is exactly what happened here. The Law Enforcement and Legislative Reform Committee was one of around 200 nominations for this year's Nobel Peace Prize.
