On May 25th, George Floyd, an unarmed black man, was killed by a white police officer using brutal, excessive force. This tragedy has led to nationwide protests and demonstrations. We support the movement to end racism, police brutality, and other injustices in America. Our hope is that George Floyd’s death will be the catalyst that ushers in a new era of peace and prosperity for the African American community, as well as all communities of color and our nation as a unified whole.
