Statement from Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., on first anniversary of murder of George Floyd

“The brutal death of George Floyd a year ago today caused soul-searching not only among municipalities and how they police their citizens, but among us all, including Notre Dame. We continue to work to better achieve diversity, equity and inclusion across the University and foster an environment in which each person’s dignity is respected, community is cultivated and the evil of racism is eradicated.”
