In the wake of the deeply moving Memorial Service for George Floyd, our staff wanted to share a few words from the heart to the Floyd family during these incredibly difficult times.
To the family of George Floyd:
The entire staff and Board of Directors of Up with People sends our deepest condolences to you for the tragic and untimely death of your beloved George. We will never forget the name George Floyd and the inspiration he has provided in the worldwide movement to stop racism.
It is difficult to measure the impact he had on the many lives he touched personally, and now with his death.
We are saddened. We are outraged. Up with People believes that our humanity demands that we stand tall in the face of injustice and work towards equity every day.
