As part of the County Prosecutors Association of New Jersey, we worked together to include the below statement as we reflect on the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s murder:

“As we solemnly mark this one-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd, we send our deepest respects and continued prayers to the family and loved ones living with this tragic loss. The past year has been a time of reckoning for our nation marked by calls for justice and for change. We have heard those calls and pledge our ongoing support and work toward criminal justice reform that delivers a stronger, fairer, more just system. While we have seen progress and change over the past year, we know that this is just the beginning and much more must be done to ensure social justice and equal treatment for everybody by law enforcement.”
