Why this petition matters

Started by Erica Fagundes

George Floyd was murdered on Monday, May 25th, by a police officer putting his knee on his neck for almost 9 minutes. After he said I can't breathe. After bystanders begged him to stop. After he went limp. After he checked his pulse. The knee stayed. 

This is an extremely disturbing video but it is a constant reality for Black people existing in this country. If you have not seen the video, I would caution you with a trigger warning. 

The officers involved have been fired and the FBI has been called for an independent investigation. We must do our part to ensure that George Floyd receives the justice he deserves.  

Please sign this petition addressed to the FBI, The President, The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, Mayor Jacob Frey, & Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (formerly: DA Mike Freeman). An email on your behalf will be sent to all of the above.

We ask for the quick arrest, and indictment of the officers involved.

Derek Chauvin: 2nd Degree Murder update 5/29: Chauvin has been brought into custody & charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. 

Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas K. Lane: Accessory to 2nd Degree Murder

The lawyer representing Floyd’s family is civil rights attorney Ben Crump. His account is a great resource. Update: The Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison has taken over the prosections in George Floyd's case. Please call (651) 296-3353 or (800) 657-3787 and tell him to arrest and charge these former officers for the Murder of George Floyd.

Please scroll down to posted updates for ways you can spread the word, numbers you can call, and updates on the investigation.
