The School of Social Work sponsored a protest against police brutality and systemic racism following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died last month in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
UTA students, faculty and staff protested outside the Social Work building before marching down Cooper Street and through campus. After the march, participants were asked to kneel for eight minutes and 46 seconds — the same amount of time Floyd was pinned to the ground.
