Statement on Police Brutality and Racism

We will say it again and again: The brutal murders and systemic oppression of Black people must end. We stand with the Black community in fighting for a future in which it’s safe to live and thrive as a Black person in America. 

We are saddened to acknowledge once again the heartbreak, pain, and frustration that our community — particularly our Black members — are feeling after yet another senseless murder by the police of a Black man, Daunte Wright.

This injustice comes mere days after the abuse of Army Officer Caron Nazario at a traffic stop and in the midst of Derek Chauvin’s trial for the murder of George Floyd. These most recent acts of anti-Black violence and brutality by police are only the latest in a longstanding history of systemic and deadly racism embedded in our country’s policing — a legacy that has caused generational trauma and demands meaningful accountability and new approaches to public safety.
