The PFA Institute Stands In Support Of Black Lives Matter
June 1, 2020
JUNE 1, 2020, [UNITED STATES]—As the protests surrounding George Floyd’s horrific murder and the larger institution of police brutality continue to grow, the PFA Institute is standing in complete support of the protests and the larger Black Lives Matter movement.
We believe that the horrific acts of violence committed by police officers against individuals such as George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and more are absolutely inexcusable. The violence displays a larger issue of inequality that is foundational to the American justice system. The policing system is violently racist towards black individuals living in America, and to pretend otherwise would be simply absurd.
The PFA Institute team is offering its immovable support of all of the activists and organizers who are fighting for justice today, whether it be at the frontlines or through other means of assistance. We are also condemning the actions of white supremacists and non-protestors for undermining the strength of the movement by committing acts of violence and thievery.
The PFA Institute will be making a donation to the Black Lives Matter movement as a show of solidarity, and will be providing a toolkit of resources for students in the coming days.
