News Release - Sigma Gamma Rho Issues Statement on the Death of George Floyd with Calls for Justice, Political Action, and Social Change (May 31, 2020)
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. continues to pray for the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmad Aubrey, and all families and communities across the nation who have suffered the tragic loss of their loved ones including Bettie Jones (Chicago, IL). Tiara Thomas (Portage, IN), India Kager (Virginia Beach, VA), and our very own Soror Sandra Bland (Waller County, TX), and the exhaustive list of precious lives persists.
We join a myriad of organizations worldwide in the collective outrage about the unlawful killings of countless African Americans, including the most recent senseless death of Mr. George Floyd. While some arrests were made in response to these heinous crimes, we will not be satisfied until all perpetrators are arrested, prosecuted, and are levied the appropriate sentence for these horrendous and unimaginable violations of law. Justice must prevail.
