Remember George Floyd:
A Virtual Community Vigil

May 30, 2020 - 6-7 p.m.

On Monday, May 25, 2020 George Floyd died because of the direct actions of Minneapolis Police officers. Because of cellphone video, we witnessed his murder which resulted from a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on the neck of this unarmed African American and black man. Unfortunately, this is not the first time, we have seen this cowardice. We saw police officers in New York choke Eric Garner to death in 2014, and yesterday we saw an unarmed George Floyd being choked to death by the knee of a Police officer as he gasped for air and said “I can’t breathe”. 

On May 30th, 2020, concerned community members and a consortium of organizations in Rochester, Minnesota including: Rochester Branch NAACP, Rochester for Justice, and Diversity Council will hold a virtual vigil for George Floyd.
