JLOSH Statement about George Floyd Murder Trial Verdicts
The guilty verdicts reached this week in the trial of George Floyd's murder are a significant step towards greater justice. While the verdicts have brought some relief and healing, we know much more progress is needed to correct wider inequities. As such, our League's work has never been more important.
We are a Junior League that stands for justice, equity and fairness. We are a Junior League guided by our mission to develop the potential of women and improve communities through effective action and empathetic leadership. We are a League made stronger by the diversity of our membership and the communities we serve.
Let us continuously strive to better carry out our core values. We must continue to support our membership by promoting inclusion, belonging, compassion and acceptance. We must continue to hold ourselves accountable to the greater ideals of equity and stand side by side with our community partners in a collective effort to break down systemic injustices and work towards meaningful community transformation. And we must continue to guide all our work, service, and operations with a strategic and focused commitment to justice and equity.
We Are Better Together.
