Congressman Marc Veasey (TX-33) Statement on Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Protests
FORT WORTH, TEXAS - Congressman Marc Veasey (TX-33) released the following statement on the continued North Texas protests seeking justice for the death of George Floyd and other African Americans:
“I am proud of the North Texans that gathered to protest peacefully against the rampant racial injustices that have been long steeped into the fabric our nation. This is a watershed moment in our country right now. It is crucial for all Americans to make their voices heard and be advocates for the important social change that has long been needed. We must keep drawing attention to these wrongs--all protests should remain peaceful and condemn the actions of rioters that are exploiting these protests to further damage our nation that is already hurting. Please protect your personal health while gathering in large groups and continue to be inspired by American heroes like Dr. Martin Luther King and Rep. John Lewis.
