NASW-MN'S RESPONSE TO THE MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD

May 29 - "We are sad and outraged at the events surrounding George Floyd’s death. We mourn the loss of his life, and are angered by the way it was taken from him. But we are not shocked, we are not surprised. This is not new...We cannot let our lack of surprise turn into apathy. Silence holds us complicit. We will not stand by as the pain, trauma, and voices of our neighbors and communities go unheard. We must do better."
