An open letter to State Governors & Legislatures

George Floyd

9 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

I am writing to you today as I am horrified by the way our state has reacted to George Floyd's murder. I am urging the state to charge all four officers involved. The National Guard has been seen firing at civilians who are on their front doorstep, protestors are being injured by the Minneapolis Police when they aren't being aggressive or violent. I usually say that I'm proud to be a Minnesotan, but at this point in time, i'm ashamed that the institutions meant to protect us citizens are the ones hurting us. I urge you to support and sponsor HR 1017, an act to demilitarize our police. Why is it that our country can fire tear gas at its own citizens but the use of tear gas is forbidden in war? Please consider and take action.
