(Garcia attends first hearing)…Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia is a member of the Select committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color.
Garcia said the first of several hearings was held to examine the community safety and justice barriers facing many young boys and men of color throughout the state. Garcia said they must make greater investments towards the success of our boys and young men of color in California. The Assemblyman said we cannot afford to lead the country in the construction of prisons and fail to properly fund our education system. Among the Committees policy priorities are to ensure police reform and accountability, promote safety and successful schools, and establish inclusive policies for immigrants.
