“This event provides the opportunity for the Caribbean community to unreservedly embrace the movement for justice for George Floyd and espouse its views on the fight for equality, social justice, as well as respect for the civil and human rights and dignity of people of color and all Americans,” the statement added.

Organizers are calling on all Caribbean Americans in the New York tristate area to join the march and rally to demand justice for Floyd, an end to systemic racism and police brutality in New York and the US. Several federal, state and city elected officials have been invited to report to the community on legislative and policy measures they have enacted to date to guarantee police accountability, justice for victims of police brutality and other abuses, as well as reverse inequities that plaque African Americans and other minorities.
