Miami, FL— Former Congressman Joe Garcia issued a statement in response to this week’s tragic police shootings in St. Paul, Minnesota and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
My thoughts are with the families of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.
The incidents of the last two days make it clear that we all need to work for peace. We need to work for fewer guns, not more. We need to work at building trust between the police and the communities they serve. We need to work at building a nation where everyone can feel safe, even if they are poor, or black, or immigrant, or LGBT.
