All of us at Hunger Action Network of New York State are outraged by the murder of yet another Black person in the United States. George Floyd was a son, a brother, a father, and a friend. His murder was the result of inhumane police brutality which continues to be perpetuated by white supremacy. Not only should those who murdered George Floyd be brought to justice, but our society needs to work for justice for all the victims of racism and violence at the hands of the state. We must dismantle Institutional and systemic racism in all its forms. Unless, and until, white America is willing to collectively acknowledge its privilege and take responsibility for its past, we will not be able to move forward toward a just, equal, and equitable society.
