One-Year Commemoration of George Floyd’s Death

May 25, 2021

Today marks one year since George Floyd’s life was tragically and brutally taken. Since May 25, 2020, a racial reckoning began to take place in America and strides have been made. Police accountability bills have been introduced in Congress. Americans began discussing what defunding law enforcement actually means. Corporations started recognizing Juneteenth. Organizations and individuals have become aware of racial injustice issues and have become activated to create change and take action against racism.

To keep the movement and momentum going, all Americans must continue to stand together and see each other as human beings. Our democracy requires nothing less from each of us as we continue our pursuit of civil rights, equity, and a world where justice just is.
