Statement About George Floyd’s Death
Our hearts break for the continued and deep injustices in this country. The outrage we are witnessing and feeling at this moment has been sparked by the excessive and lethal force against a man who was handcuffed on the ground and had the life crushed out of him. George Floyd’s murder is just one of countless examples of the open display of racism and hatred that is tolerated (and even encouraged) in this country. We must come together, work together and stand together to fight these injustices. We pledge to do everything we can to stand with those who can no longer stand for themselves. Rest In Peace Big Floyd. Please stay safe and try to remain peaceful. It is important that we not destroy our neighborhoods and behave violently. Whenever possible, we must take the higher ground of peace, persistence and justice.
