Tributes around the country honoring the life and memory of George Floyd, killed one year ago today by a former Minneapolis Police officer.
In New York City, Rev. Al Sharpton called for new police reform legislation at a press conference. In Washington, DC, the Floyd family met with President Biden and Vice President Harris, where the President expressed his disappointment the George Floyd Justice & Policing act has not yet passed.
Over the weekend, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) said they are going to continue pressing and are confident they can present a bill which pass all three branches of government.
We may face setbacks while striving for progress, but let our love go undeterred and our grace unblemished.— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 20, 2021
