A conversation with President Obama: Reimagining policing in the wake of continued police violence

Recently, former President Barack Obama hosted a livestream to talk about the world’s current police brutality protests on his website. The nation and other countries have started to protest in direct response to George Floyd’s murder by four police officers. Reportedly, the livestream is part of the Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance Town Hall series. Former Attorney General Eric Holder also was a part of the livestream, which is now trending at #1 on YouTube.

At the time of his murder, George Floyd was forty-six-years-old. Join us today with the NAACP for a moment of silence. The organisation asks for everyone to take a moment of silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
