Senator urges public to attend community meeting tonight

OKLAHOMA CITY –  Sen. Kevin Matthews is inviting citizens to an All Live Matter “Not in our Town” meeting tonight at 7:00PM at Morning Star Baptist Church, 1014 E. Pine Street, to discuss the recent tragic shootings of both African American citizens and police officers around the country in recent weeks.

“We can’t have any more innocent deaths of our children or our officers.  I urge my brothers and sisters in the community to join us tonight as we work together to find peaceful solutions to the problems in our communities,” said Matthews, D-Tulsa.  “Killing police is not the solution, and certainly police killing our children is unacceptable.  Many are justifiably angry on both sides but we cannot afford to be emotional and lose more lives.”

Matthews said solutions will be discussed including proposed legislation, community police relations, diversity of local law enforcement and other issues.
