“I’ve had many conversations this week about the brutal death of George Floyd.
I mourn for George and grieve with the family he left behind. This tragedy has shaken the foundation of communities and hearts across America – including Baton Rouge.
Society is faced with an endless reiteration of appeals to humanity for justice and restoration of democratic principles.
Yet, we must never allow ourselves to be indifferent to tragedies like this. In solidarity we must find our ability to bring change to this world.”
-Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome
