NextGen Leader Removed from Dallas Council Meeting

DALLAS --  Last time the Next Generation Action Network tried to get attention, they got a lot more than they bargained for.

Wednesday they tried again, this time at a Dallas city council meeting.

There weren't many people in the council chambers.  But that was okay.  They only wanted attention from one person:  Mayor Mike Rawlings.

Next Gen's Dominique Alexander wants to talk to the mayor about Campaign Zero, a police reform campaign promoted by Black Lives Matter.

"The mayor will not meet with us. We want the city of Dallas to know that the mayor will not meet with us,” says Dominique R. Alexander,  President of the Next Generation Action Network.

"We want accountability in this city, we want this city to address these issues and talk about these issues, these issues will not stop until the rhetoric is addressed," he said.

Security guards escorted Alexander out of the meeting. He spoke to media about why he was there.  His main goal is to be heard.

"They don't ever bring us to a table to address these issues, and that’s the problem. We need to be brought to the table to address how we want to be policed in our communities."

UPDATE: A spokesman for the mayor says Alexander's claim that the mayor has refused to meet with him is false. The spokesman says Rawlings has agreed to meet with Alexander "...at some point in the future."
