Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Liz Walters released the following statement marking the one-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd and underscoring the Party’s steadfast commitment to the ongoing fight for racial justice.
“One year after George Floyd’s death, our state and our country are still grappling with the fact that Mr. Floyd and so many other men and women should be alive today. No verdict or speech or piece of legislation can right the wrong that was done to Mr. Floyd and his family. Yet, we also know that we have a responsibility to do everything we can to help prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future. Ohio Democrats are committed to fighting for racial justice, holding our institutions accountable and creating a safer, fairer and more just Ohio for all who call our state home,” said Chair Walters.
