June 03, 2020

SACRAMENTO – State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego), Chair of the California Latino Legislative Caucus, released the following statement today on behalf of the entire Latino Caucus in response to the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police on May 25:

“The tragic death of George Floyd and so many of our Black brothers and sisters in California and in our country have both deeply saddened and angered us all. Latinos have historically stood alongside our Black brothers and sisters for many civil injustices and in this moment, it is no different. We are encouraged by the peaceful protests during this time of anguish and anger, and we encourage raising voices and demanding true reform. We stand in strong solidarity with our colleagues in the Black Legislative Caucus and our communities of color against severe injustice, systemic racism and police brutality in our state and country. Estamos contigo!”
