Hillary Clinton today will deliver remarks about the police-involved deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile while campaigning alongside Vice President Joe Biden in his hometown of Scranton, Penn., as well as during an appearance at the African-Methodist Episcopal Convention in Philadelphia, according to a campaign aide.
Although this is the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s first time campaigning with the vice president, the event will now reflect the shootings of the two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota that have resulted in protests throughout the country.”
…During both of her campaign events today, Clinton, an aide said, will “renew her calls to ensure justice is served and will reemphasize the urgent need to reform our broken criminal justice system.”” Clinton was also scheduled to appear in Philadelphia Friday night as the keynote speaker at the African Methodist Episcopal Church’s Bicentennial Conference, which marks the AME church’s 1816 founding in Philadelphia.
