George Floyd Memorial

George Floyd Memorial

At the intersection of 38th Street E and Chicago Avenue S in Minneapolis, MN, people come from all over the world to stand in solidarity for racial justice, express their pain and hope, and pay respect to the names of people who died unjust deaths. These offerings continue to be received and tended to by local community members (caretakers) with support from local organizations like the Pillsbury House and Theater and the Midwest Art Conservation Center.

The George Floyd Global Memorial was established to bring together members of George Floyd’s family and the local community to preserve these creative expressions of pain and hope of the people for the people.
