We at the Minneapolis Area Realtors® are outraged and grieving in the aftermath of the killing of fellow Minnesotan, George Floyd. As an organization committed to diversity and inclusion, we stand with George Floyd’s family, friends, and all who call for justice and accountability.
Our values and Realtor® Code of Ethics demand “social responsibility” in pursuit of integrity and honor. We advocate for these higher goals at the local, state, and national government level and mobilize to ensure fair treatment for all people. These values were not represented by the conduct of the four former Minneapolis Police Officers implicated in Mr. Floyd’s death. We condemn their actions and call for justice to be served.
Moving forward we will use our collective voices and platform to redouble our efforts to remove racial inequities here in Minneapolis. In the coming days we will provide opportunities to join us in petitioning for change and contributing to local community organizations focused on rebuilding in Minneapolis.
Together we will work toward a more just and safe community for everyone.
