Lavender Green Caucus statement on the killing of George Floyd

The late Bayard Rustin once said, "Let us be enraged about injustice, but let us not be destroyed by it." We witness injustice all around us and on a Monday in late May injustice destroyed George Floyd in the streets of Minneapolis. The video of Floyds death is horrific and terrible but not unusual in the United States. George Floyd became another victim of racially motivated police brutality which we see being repeated over and over again across the United States. It should not be a death sentence to be Black in America. Our system has failed to address this crisis of racially motivated police violence in any meaningful sense. Continue reading

The arrest of Derek Chavuin, while a welcome development, must be followed with the same for the other former officers. Continue reading

Statement on the public executions of unarmed black men, women and children nationwide

HARTFORD, Ct – The video-recorded killing of George Floyd by one Minneapolis police officer while other officers participated or stood by and said nothing, and while frightened members of the public tried desperately to intervene on his behalf represents a terrifying new low in the United States. While white millionaires who have engaged in multi-million dollar fraud may spend a little time in country club prisons where their bunkmates are politicians and other well-heeled “white collar” criminals, an African American man was publicly executed without trial, based on the mere allegation that he passed a fake twenty dollar bill.
