People Are Coming Together To Clean Up Neighborhoods That Were Damaged By Looting
George Floyd was murdered by police officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis during a routine arrest on May 25th, and that sparked a nation wide protest across America to seek justice for the Floyd family and to end police brutality.
In some of the cities, the protest were pushed aside by looters who destroyed property and stole from local businesses, but after a few days the community leaders have came together to clean up their communities.

It’s not just Minneapolis where communities have came together to clean up the aftermath of the looting. Several NFL players in Tampa even pitched in to clean up.
A wonderful act of service.
