TULSA, Okla. — On Saturday, Gov. Kevin Stitt joined Vice President Mike Pence for a roundtable discussion on race with local faith and community leaders at the Tulsa Dream Center.

The discussion and listening session focused on recent unrest across the United States as a result of George Floyd’s tragic death in Minneapolis, according to a news release by the governor's office.

It’s a tremendous honor to have Vice President Pence in Oklahoma as we continue to engage in important conversations around race. The Bible says, “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it.” We value the Oklahoma Standard here in our state, and through listening, learning, and uniting as one, we’re going to lead the way as a state that’s willing to overcome our differences and work together to see change that delivers a better future for all.
