Closing arguments begin on April 19 in the Derek Chauvin trial, followed by jury deliberations. The former Minneapolis police officer is charged with the murder of George Floyd. Daunte Wright’s killing on April 12 by a police officer in the suburb of Brooklyn Center is still raw. George Floyd and Daunte Wright are two among too many unarmed black men killed by police in the U.S. The world is watching Minnesota. We must not be silent.

Central to Beehive’s social impact commitment is standing up for justice and equity in our communities. We join the Twin Cities and Black communities mourning the loss of Daunte Wright. We stand in solidarity with organizations that are demanding justice for Daunte Wright and his family. As a Certified B Corporation, Beehive recognizes the role that businesses and individuals must play in dismantling the racist systems, policies and practices that harm Black, brown and indigenous people (BIPOC).

We are inspired by these words: Hopeful people are people of action.

Right now is the time to take action to impact change at the systemic level. There are many ways to take action in Minnesota and in communities across our country. The resources below are Minnesota-focused, but there are similar state, regional and national organizations.

Together, we have the power to create a better world. It starts with hopeful people taking action.
