Statement from Cat Stewart, Chair of BCCR, on the George Floyd Verdict:
Today we witnessed accountability for a crime we all saw with our own eyes. This moment is a piece of a larger history that did not always include this accountability. Justice was served today for George Floyd’s family and for this we celebrate their relief and ability to find peace.
True justice will be served when BIPOC communities are able to live without fear of violence and discrimination. True justice will be served when all are seen for their humanity. Until this justice is served, we will continue working and educating ourselves and the Bridgewater community.
