WASHINGTON – Today, on the two-year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) issued the following statement:
“George Floyd should be alive today. He should be alive to swap trucking tips with his brother, take a walk around his neighborhood on a beautiful spring day, and hug his family. But every day that he isn’t here is a reminder of the work that lies ahead.
“As we mark this somber anniversary, let us recommit ourselves to making meaningful change in our justice system and building on the progress set in motion by President Biden’s actions today to improve it. Let us lift up George Floyd’s memory as the man who inspires us to confront systemic racism with systemic change. And let us honor the life that he lived by continuing to fight for justice every day.”
