Dozens of LGBTQ Groups Denounce Racist Violence

 | 
05/29/2020

Following a series of racist incidents and fatal police shootings targeting Black individuals, a coalition of leaders representing at least 75 LGBTQ organizations signed a joint statement denouncing racial violence and encouraging folks to step up and do their part in eradicating racism. The letter alluded to a series of recent incidents that have sparked protests across the nation, including the disturbing killing of George Floyd — who died on Memorial Day after a Minneapolis cop dug his knee into his neck on the ground for roughly eight minutes — as well as the death of Breonna Taylor at the hands of Louisville Metro police officers who barged into her Kentucky home and shot her in March. The letter also points to the recent outrage that resulted from the delay in law enforcement action in the video-recorded slaying of Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia, where he was gunned down by racists in broad daylight.
