Memorial of George Floyd

A memorial is planned for Mr. George Floyd, in Minneapolis, on Thursday, June 4th from 1:00-3:00 pm. In recognition of his life and the others in Minnesota and throughout the nation who have died due to police violence, I ask the Hamline University community to use that time set aside for Mr. Floyd’s memorial to reflect on how we can all be better, do better in the name of justice, equity, and humanity. To that end, I am asking all who choose, to identify a way in which you might mourn Mr. Floyd’s death. Some of you might choose to be silent, others of you might choose to be home, and others might choose a different path. Whatever you choose, I ask you to join in solidarity with all those who want to breathe.
