Statement about the Tragic Murder of George Floyd and Others

We at Northside Community Resources and Northside Community Development Corp. mourn the tragic murders of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia, among many others. We urge the real reform of police practices here in Chicago and across the country that too often victimize African-Americans. We strongly support the right of peaceful protesters to express their outrage. We are as committed as ever to achieve our mission to build and strengthen communities among the diverse populations of Chicago's North Side, rooted in the belief that diversity is our strength. Please join us in our work for empowerment, justice, and peace in our community.
