George Floyd's death is a brutal reminder of how little we have progressed as a society and country. It is not enough to speak up only when necessary. It is not enough to just post on social media with a 'trending' hashtag. It is not okay that countless families have to suffer the loss of a family member by the hands of those in power and receive no justice. It is not okay that our system allows countless Black lives to be lost. The tragic murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor left us heartbroken and angry.
I have decided to turn my anger into action and hope you will join me. I believe that our society is broken and I will do as much as possible to be a part of the change and stand in solidarity with the Black community and with all who suffer from discrimination, injustice and racism. Below are ways you can join me in learning, listening and acting.
