It’s been just over three months since George Floyd was murdered. When I first heard of his death,  I honestly didn’t expect much to happen. As a longtime Black Lives Matter activist, I anticipated the usual hashtags, maybe a rally or two, and plenty of thoughts and prayers. 

Instead, we’ve seen George’s 6-year-old daughter Gianna’s words come true. “Daddy changed the world.”

We come to this moment in our history, humbly, fully realizing there are no easy solutions. But we also come with an unwavering commitment to find answers to the question of our time: where do we go from here?
