George Floyd and the Racial Injustices We Must Address

A Message from the Hillsboro City Council

George Floyd. Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. Mulugeta Seraw. Each of their lives were ended early due to racist violence. Each would be alive today — if they were white.

We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the countless individuals who have been killed due to racism and police brutality. To our residents of color, especially our black residents, please know that we see you, we hear you, and we recognize your pain is justified.  Black lives matter.
