This week, we mourn and condemn the senseless and cruel murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police. Tragically, George Floyd was one of many victims of white supremacy and anti-black racism in the United States. The protests throughout our nation give voice to those who have cried for years that Black Lives Matter.
We stand in peaceful solidarity with the BlackLivesMatter movement. To all black people who are angry, who are hurting, who seek change: We will be your standing stone. We will stand by you.
