One year after George Floyd's Murder- A Conscious Check-in
May 25, 2021
George Floyd was murdered one year ago today on May 25th, 2020.
It's one of those moments when many of us know what we were doing when we saw the video, who we leaned on, and how we attempted to process everything that came up inside.
There were also a lot of promises made. Black squares were posted on social media. Companies made commitments to hire Black talent (most of which never happened), and millions of people made promises to unlearn White Supremacy and learn how to be true allies.
But, how much of that was just for the moment? How many people went back to business as usual once the protests were taken "indoors?"
If you stood up last year, are you still standing...or have you gone back to your seat?
