The faculty and staff at Maine Law are heart-broken and beyond angry that one more person of color has lost his life while pleading for dignity, respect, and just an ounce of human compassion. Words seem particularly useless at times like this, but it is words in action – speaking up, being present, and refusing to be distracted – that are needed now. We send our deepest sympathies to George Floyd’s loved ones, and we will redouble our efforts to bring disparate groups of the community together to continue the real work in Maine’s communities that will be necessary for permanent change. Racial Injustice must end.
