At Lee Carlson Center we are sad and outraged at the events surrounding George Floyd’s death. We mourn the loss of his life, and are angered by the way it was taken from him. But we are not shocked, we are not surprised. This is not new. Racism, xenophobia, police brutality, the school to prison pipeline – and too much more – are realities that continue to impact how we live, too often resulting in loss of life.
We stand in solidarity with our community, heartbroken by the events that led to the death of George Floyd. Our communities of color have endured too much pain. Our hearts grieve for Mr. Floyd and those close to him.
Our team is passionate about and committed to fighting for a world where all are safe and all can thrive regardless of who we are or where we live.
We stand firmly alongside those across our community demanding, fighting and hoping for a better future.
