The Greenwich Democrats have issued the following statement on the murder of George Floyd
The Greenwich Democrats condemn systemic racism, denounce use of excessive force by Law Enforcement
The murder of George Floyd was abominable, as were the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others - too many others. The aftermath of their horrific deaths has brought us to a critical juncture, where we can choose to put an end to systemic racism or let it, and all the horrors it engenders, continue. We, the Greenwich Democratic Town Committee, choose the former.
We stand with the black community and all those protesting for change – and not change as we have come to know it, painfully ephemeral, but as it should be, lasting and effective. Change of this nature is the only way to ensure that the phrase “Black Lives Matter” is no longer a debatable assertion, but rather an undeniable truth in everyone’s mind.
