Community & Friends,

We started this week with news of yet another black man being killed by police in Minnesota. Daunte Wright was fatally shot on Sunday afternoon during a traffic stop. Monday also marked the start of the third week of the Derek Chauvin trial. It is clear that something needs to change and we call for justice for George Floyd, Daunte Wright and all people of color killed at the hands of police.

Impact Hub is here to provide support to our community, so reach out if you need.

Have an IMPACTful week.
