A Statement of Solidarity
We, the undersigned, are outraged at the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.
We stand in solidarity with the black community that have for far too long been targeted by police and have suffered unfair and uneven applications of the law.
We call upon our government and law enforcement at the national and local levels to fully investigate and hold accountable all the involved officers and to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
We call upon our government and law enforcement agencies at every level to institute sweeping reforms in law enforcement and criminal justice.
We pledge to join forces with the black community and other Americans to see through these changes and to work for a more just American society.
