  A statement about the death of George Floyd We, at the Carlson Family Foundation, grieve the death of George Floyd and recognize the pain permeating our community. George Floyd’s death is emblematic of the injustice and inequity people of color face every day. This tragedy and others like it remind us why we must break down structural and systemic barriers, including racism, in our community. We must never give up on this urgent need for systemic change, and we must continue to work together to build a better future.
