Joe Biden To Meet With George Floyd's Family on Anniversary of His Murder

Today marks one year since Floyd died at the hands of a police officer.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will meet with the family of George Floyd on the one-year anniversary of his murder, a killing that sparked a nationwide reckoning with racism and police brutality. Biden and Harris will sit down with Floyd’s mother, daughter and wife, as well as his siblings.

Floyd’s family will also meet Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker and other Capitol lawmakers to discuss police reform. The Biden administration is still working to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, legislation that would end qualified immunity for police officers, ban chokeholds and instate a national registry of police misconduct. The law is currently undergoing negotiation in Congress.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki clarified that Biden and Harris will meet with the Floyd family in private. “He has a genuine relationship with them,” she told CNN. “The courage and grace of this family — and especially [Floyd's] daughter, Gianna — has really stuck with the president…He’s eager to listen to their perspectives and hear what they have to say during this meeting.”
