“It’s time for all people of conscience to stand together and condemn the hate and racism so prevalent in our society today. 

The murder of George Floyd and other instances of hate and racism are insulting and shocking to our values of equality, liberty and freedom for all people. 

While we don’t condone the riots and violence in our state, we understand the outrage. As policy makers, it’s our job to listen and to act to make our world free of hate and racism. 

We know that none of us are truly free unless all of us are free.”
