California Gavin Newsom spent time on Tuesday helping with clean up efforts in downtown Sacramento following several nights of vandalism, arson, and looting associated with recent protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis, Minnesota, police.

The Governor joined with children to scrub paint from the Peace Officers Memorial at the state Capitol. He noted that the volunteers who rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in the clean up are from all walks of life.

Also on Tuesday, Mayor Darrell Steinberg said he wants the citywide curfew to continue tonight, and noted that 500 members of the California National Guard will continue to help patrol the city to prevent vandals and looters from striking at more businesses.
