Rise + Remember Festival and Self-Care Fair
On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd was murdered by the Minneapolis Police Department at the intersection of 38th Street E and Chicago Avenue S. People from all over the world gathered to protest, stand in solidarity, and demand justice. In the wake of George’s death, thousands of people came together in community and occupied what is now known as George Floyd Square.
