Statement from NYS Democratic Chairman on Remembering George Floyd

For Immediate Release: May 25, 2021

NASSAU COUNTY, NY: New York State Democratic Party Chairman Jay S. Jacobs has released the following statement:

"We should not allow the life of George Floyd to be defined by his brutal, tragic, unnecessary death.  Rather, we should commit ourselves to work toward that day when the name George Floyd evokes the memory of one good, decent American citizen, who without intent, gave his life to ensure that the words “with liberty and justice for all” applied to every citizen in this great country of ours."
