Every life is precious to God, and all human beings deserve equal protection under the law. Tragically, some lives are still valued less than others. The Douglass Leadership Institute mourns the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and the countless other African Americans whom our country failed to protect. We have come so far, but there is much work left to do. The great Frederick Douglass reminded us, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” We struggle on.
