Content warning: racism, violence, anti-Black racism, white terrorism, police violence

One year ago today, George Floyd was murdered at the hands of the police.

Today we remember George Floyd. George Floyd was a son, a brother, a friend. He should be alive today.

There’s no greater threat to Black lives than violence being inflicted at the hands of the state — through blatant violence and through centuries of policy that have systemically oppressed Black people. The fight to defund the police continues.

The human right to live free from state-sanctioned violence is a reproductive justice issue and not separate from our work at PPPA. Reproductive freedom is the freedom to live without your existence being policed.

Bodily autonomy extends beyond health care and when and whether to have children. It must include having the resources and safety to support families. George Floyd was robbed of that human right.

Black lives matter.

We must recommit to fighting racism, in particular anti-Black racism. Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates stands in solidarity with the Black community, reproductive justice leaders, and community partners.

We send love to our communities, especially to those who experience this trauma personally.
