VIRTUAL TOWN HALLS - The Texas Legislative Black Caucus is holding virtual town halls on what measures state lawmakers should pursue to change policing and address racial inequality. The series of meetings, prompted by the police killing of George Floyd, kicked off Wednesday night. State Representative Lorraine Birabil of Dallas is one of several Democrats urging Governor Greg Abbott to call a special legislative session.
"We actually have four-pages single-spaced of legislation that has been previously proposed but not passed by the state legislature.," Birabil explained. "And so there are quite a few reforms ranging from training, ranging from the type of positions that could allowed during an arrest."
A virtual town hall will be held later today and you can access it on the Texas Legislative Black Caucus Facebook page.
