Since late May, Seattle and its surrounding communities have seen widespread demonstrations over the killing of George Floyd.

George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, was killed on May 25 when a white Minneapolis officer pressed a knee on his neck for several minutes. His death has inspired a worldwide reckoning over racial injustice.

The anger, hurt, and turmoil has left many wanting and searching for additional ways to support the Black community.
