Intergroup Relations

IGR stands in solidarity with the Black community

It has been seven days since four police officers in Minneapolis murdered George Floyd, an unarmed black man in broad daylight. In the last week, we have witnessed a global uprising coalesce in response to this extrajudicial murder of yet another innocent Black man in our country’s 400-year history of murdering Black folks. We have watched as our president has instigated increasing bellicosity and has threatened what amounts to martial law in response to the uprising. And we have witnessed all this while living through a pandemic of generational and global impact that has also disproportionately impacted some in our country more than others, particularly people of color and low-income folks.
