It's been a year since George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. Last month, The Alliance shared resources to help capacity builders and organizational leaders understand why nonprofit organizations should care about the jury's verdict resulting in the conviction of Chauvin, who will be sentenced next month.

Over the last year we've witnessed organizations across the country making a commitment to address racial equity and advocating for fair consequences on behalf of countless injustices faced by Black and Brown people in America. While the atrocities against these communities have long-existed in law enforcement, social sectors, businesses, and social venues like bars, restaurants and coffee shops, awareness and accountability is at an all-time high. Entities throughout the country have spent the last 365 days making statements about how they are creating a more equitable workplace, but now it's time to show specific examples of how this work is being accomplished.
