NAWL Issues Statement & Call to Action in Response to the Murder of George Floyd

We write to you with heavy hearts as our nation has once again been shocked by the senseless killing of another Black person at the hands of the police. The murder of George Floyd is a reminder of the grim inequities that run rampant in our society.

These inequities are reflected in victims like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless other Black women and men, as well as the disproportionate health and unemployment impacts of COVID-19 on the Black community.

We must support one another to fight institutional racism and bigotry. Read more>>
