HPW & DPW official Statement on Killing of George Floyd At HPW & DPW We stand in solidarity with the Black community !! We Stand Together Against Racism !! We mourn the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police. This is yet one more tragic example of racist violence too often perpetrated by police officers, who are charged with protecting all of us–not only some of us. We again face the reality that people of color in our country live in fear that encounters with law enforcement will result in serious injury or death. We stand in solidarity against racism, oppression, violence, and injustice. We encourage you to do what you can to help, whether it’s donating, protesting, joining organizations, reading books, listening to podcasts on race and diversity, or having difficult conversations. Now is the time to take action. We will not sit back and watch or be silent. We must fight against hate and discrimination.
