BLACK LIVES MATTER

Unfortunately, the brutal killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer repeats a pattern of racist acts of violence and murder we have witnessed far too often in our society. We share the grief, frustration and anger that unfathomable, appalling and preventable acts like this one spur. The list of African Americans who have been brutally killed is lengthy and stretches over the history of our nation. Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery are simply the most recent victims. What has happened these last couple of weeks motivates us to think about immediate steps we can take to address the challenges we are currently facing.
