The Department of Biology Faculty & Staff Statement on the Death of George Floyd

George Floyd, an unarmed, 46 year old African American man, was filmed as a police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes while he was handcuffed and face down in the street. This action led to his subsequent death and sparked an unprecedented level of civil unrest within this country and across the world. The Faculty and Staff of the CSUEB Department of Biological Sciences stand united in the belief that Black lives matter and in solidarity with the diverse millions calling for equitable treatment of Black people in this country. This includes but is certainly not limited to the reform of law enforcement practice and policy. We believe that radical changes like these will be a movement toward a just community for all people in our nation.Read More
