In remembrance of George Floyd and the hundreds of other people of color that have died during interactions with police, we wanted to share this message from former President Obama as he recognizes the struggle while still looking for the hope. We have made strides, AND there is still a lot of work to be done. Let’s continue to work together to do our part to bring about systemic change.
“George Floyd was murdered one year ago today. Since then, hundreds more Americans have died in encounters with police—parents, sons, daughters, friends taken from us far too soon, but the last year has also given us reasons to hope. Today, more people in more places are seeing the world more clearly than they did a year ago, it’s a tribute to all those who decided that this time would be different—and that they, in their own ways, would help make it different.”
