The Murder of George Floyd

May 29, 2020

This past week the world watched in horror as another unarmed black man was murdered by police. George Floyd was handcuffed and lying on the ground and yet an officer knelt on his neck for almost 10 minutes until he died. 

 

 

To help us process this act of violence and look for a way forward, we’ll listen in on a conversation between Doug Pagitt and Reverend Michael Waters.
