A Statement from Varnum’s Diversity Committee Regarding George Floyd

May 29, 2020

On Monday, May 25, George Floyd died while in the custody of a group of Minneapolis police officers. While the incident remains under investigation, we as members of the legal profession are deeply committed to the pursuit of justice, and are profoundly troubled and saddened by the death of Mr. Floyd. We acknowledge and find unacceptable the repeated injustices people of color in America have long endured. Varnum is committed to working to fulfill the promise of justice for every American and to add our voices to the chorus demanding change. We fully support our attorneys’ and staff’s efforts in this arena, from pro bono representation to community engagement activities. Varnum’s Diversity Committee will actively seek out opportunities for those interested to engage in conversation and education on these important issues, as well as make meaningful contributions to organizations engaged in social justice issues.
