Our nation and our communities are hurting. Right now is the time to make our voices heard, open ourselves up to having uncomfortable but continuous conversations and educate ourselves.
I stand am committed to being a part of the shift to better understand, support and make changes in the cities we love to explore. In order to ensure this is a movement, not just a moment, I am sharing a list of organizations to follow, support, and donate to. We must fight for racial justice and equality right now and beyond.

This memorial fund is established to cover funeral and burial expenses, mental and grief counseling, lodging and travel for all court proceedings, and to assist Floyd’s family in the days to come as they continue to seek justice for George. Donate here.
