Bustos Statement on Nation’s Response to Killing of George Floyd

Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos released the following statement:

“The past week and weekend show a nation in pain. We must find the strength to move forward together, but we can only do that when we all work to address systemic racism, together. No one can sit this fight out – it impacts us all and demands the attention of every one of us. Let me be clear – police brutality is never acceptable. Our first steps must be in acknowledging the harm caused to our communities and working to deliver justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many others.”
