Providence in solidarity with Black Lives Matter

National protests began in Minneapolis on May 26, 2020 following the killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, in which Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on his neck 8 minutes and 46 seconds —assisted by three other police officers—after pinning the handcuffed man to the ground during an arrest the previous day. Protests continued into June, as social justice transcended social distancing in a time of lingering Coronavirus pandemic.

On Friday, June 5, 2020, Providence caregivers joined others in a moment of silence to honor Mr. Floyd and the national pain.
