NYSUT statement on a weekend of unrest in the wake of the George Floyd killing

"Our hearts are broken by the killing of George Floyd. Communities throughout New York and across the country are experiencing severe pain, anger and anguish. Addressing racial and economic inequities, which were already laid bare by the coronavirus pandemic, has taken on new urgency. Organized labor lives by the motto, ‘An injury to one is an injury to all,’ and right now, there are far too many injuries for any of us to be silent. Together we must consistently tear down prejudices that facilitate such acts and dismantle the structures that allow inequality to remain a fixture in our society.”
