Today, Tuesday, May 25th marks one year since George Floyd was brutally murdered by the police in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Here are 3 things you can do to show solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement and remember George Floyd and others who have been murdered by the police. 

  1. Listen to Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd: Unpacking Racism (Season 2, Episode 17)
  2. Take some time today to have a moment of silence for George Floyd, his family, and the many others who have been murdered and brutalized by the police. 
    • How has your life changed since George Floyd was murdered?
    • What have you learned about antiracism in the last year and how have you turned that learning into action? Or if you haven’t taken action yet, what are some ways that you plan to take anti-racist action? 
    • What conversations have you had with others about racism? How do you feel about those conversations, is there anything you would do differently next time? 
    • How are you redistributing your time and your resources to help fight for Black liberation? 
  3. Reflect on your anti-racist journey by answering the following questions
