MUSC Calls on Senate to Pass George Floyd Justice in Policing Act

One year ago today, we all watched in horror as George Floyd’s last breath was snuffed out of him by the pressure of Officer Derek Chauvin’s knee on his neck for more than nine minutes. In his final moments, George called out in desperation for his mother. For the past year, we all have been under arrest with emotion over the incredible injustice done to George Floyd and many others harassed and killed by law enforcement. Last month, we got a glimpse of justice being served and finally witnessed accountability where there hasn’t been before. We are thankful for the change in tide, but understand that one verdict cannot erase 400 years of hate, discrimination and dehumanization.

On this day and everyday, we honor the life of George Floyd and all others whose lives were ended too soon. Our hearts go out to all Moms who have lost their sons at the hands of those meant to protect and serve.

We encourage you to contact your U.S. Senators to press for passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Future generations are counting on us.
