On the Ground: George Floyd’s Memorial in Houston, Texas

In our continuing coverage of the nationwide protests to demand justice for the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless other victims of police brutality, we went to George Floyd’s hometown of Houston, TX for his memorial service. We spoke to some in attendance about their native son, including Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D).

Over the past two and a half months, as much of our country has lived in quarantine, we’ve witnessed the violent loss of black lives with disturbing frequency. Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd have died at the hands of racists and law enforcement. Complex Networks recognizes the power of its platforms and is committed to amplifying their stories and the voices of our communities to work for justice.
