Kaptur Statement in response to ongoing unrest sparked by the killing of George Floyd


Washington, D.C., June 1, 2020: Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) released the following statement in response to the ongoing protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd:  


“It is our duty as Americans to snuff out all forms of hate and racism. Those protesting peacefully are patriots. Their demonstration is as the Founders envisioned and they deserve respect and admiration for seeking a better America. They will make our country stronger,” said Rep. Kaptur.

“To the very small minority of people who have resorted to violence, consider the lasting effects such destruction will have on communities that too often are already struggling. Whatever your objective, you make harder the lives of so many people. Let the words of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. guide you: ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.’


“I will continue to support those who are working to create a more just society. I will continue to work with local leaders and advocates to ensure that Northern Ohio leads the way in that fight. And I will continue to fight for the passage of important legislation in Congress, such as the Police Training and Independent Review Act, and efforts to revive the very successful community policing initiatives of previous Administrations.


“I invite people of goodwill from across Northern Ohio to join me in helping rebuild the torn spirits and burned blocks of our country. Let us rise from this deep tragedy and engage the true spirit of America. Let us do it in George Floyd’s memory, and the memory of every victim of racist violence. Let us unite with the grieving family of George Floyd and aspire to fulfill his family’s wish – justice and peace.
