Snapshot: Zionsville gathers in solidarity to honor George Floyd


Zionsville officials and residents kneel for 8 minutes and 46 seconds June 1, the same length of time George Floyd was pinned on the ground by a Minneapolis Police officer May 25 as he died in police custody. “The people of Zionsville have proven a community can come together to honor and respect the memory of George Floyd with respect and honor,” ZPD Chief Michael Spears, who attended the event, said. “I was very proud to kneel with Mayor Emily Styron and the hundreds gathered at our town hall to remember Mr. Floyd. The poignancy of the gathering strengthened our resolve to work together to bring about much needed change.” (Submitted photos)
