DC 37's Henry Garrido on the Murder of George Floyd

"The murder of another unarmed black man is a grim reminder of the social and economic inequalities that are embedded in our society. As we analyze the wave of civil unrest erupting in so many American cities, these inequalities must be included in the discussion. Our communities and the people I represent demand better.  We demand more from our elected leaders, especially those in position to make meaningful changes to a system that continues to marginalize, degrade and injure communities of color.  

"Undoubtedly, communities of color will rise, as we have for generations, but we all must be resolute and committed to organize and fight against a system, powered by racism, that only benefit the few. I stand with the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many more, to demand justice."

-- Henry Garrido, Executive Director, DC 37
