Colorado Christian University mourns the tragic death and unjust killing of George Floyd. Sadly, this is not an isolated incident and points to a deeper racism that festers in our land. At the same time, we also condemn those who seek to exploit the tragedy of this situation by looting, torching vehicles, burning buildings, defacing national monuments and destroying hundreds of businesses. The number of people killed as a result of violent protest represents a disturbing breakdown in the rule of law and cannot be excused as a just response to this incident.
How do we seek justice for the black community? How do we improve policing in America? How do we protect our cities and local communities from violent riots? How does America live up to its claims of one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all?
Join the Centennial Institute and community leaders Antonia Okafor Cover, CJ Pearson, Dr. Biff Gore, and Casper Stockham for a Zoom discussion on these issues.
