“We could not have predicted, that George Floyd, whose killing by police would inspire a year of worldwide protests, unifying people of all nationalities, calling for an end to systemic racism and police brutality. A year later, his injustice has continued to shake the nation and the world and it is our intention that the sacrifice of his life, is not in vain and does result in justice, saving other lives and ultimately change the world,” says Shareeduh Tate, President of The George Floyd Foundation and George’s 1st cousin.
The George Floyd Foundation (GFF) was founded by the family of George Floyd as a response to the brutal murder of George Floyd that occurred for 9 minutes and 29 seconds, by the hands of the Minnesota Police Department. Georges ‘I can’t breathe’ plea for his life was a cry heard around the world. The GFF is dedicated to ensuring that Georges plea never goes unanswered, that Georges voice is never again silenced and that the community is served by achieving greater access to social justice education and advocacy, youth services and workforce development programs to assist with relieving the burden of inequality and injustice.
The mission of the George Floyd Foundation is to create social justice equality and equity opportunities in the areas of social justice education and advocacy, youth services and workforce development. Website: https://www.thegeorgefloydfoundation.org
