Milwaukee, WI (April 22, 2021) – Circa welcomes the guilty verdict in George Floyd’s murder trial and commends the 12 Minnesota jurors who upheld the rule of law.
As a company that believes in the transformative power of diversity, Circa is steadfast in its belief that people are all created equal; and government, including law enforcement should provide all citizens equal protection under the law, regardless of race.
Circa is cognizant of the fact that one guilty verdict does not change make. It’s unsettling to think of what direction things may have gone had the verdict been different. Sadly, our nation gets to do this again in August when the three other policemen are tried. Then, in the midst of all this, Daunte Wright is killed in the hands of another police officer. And another, and another.
The U.S. judicial system plays an important role in meting out justice to victims who are wronged. “A court case can set precedence by way of case law, yet the change we seek in our society to ensure that this never happens again can only be brought about by continued action to eliminate racism, bias, bigotry, and hate in all forms. Systemic problems require systemic solutions,” said Roselle Rogers, Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for Circa”
Addressing systemic racism takes time and progress can be made. Towards this end, Circa encourages:
Rogers concluded, “Racism needs to end with our generation. Change begins with you and me, and it begins now.”
