A Defining Moment for those who Value Justice

Posted on April 21, 2021

Editor’s note – The following statement was issued by John Regan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Associated Industries of Massachusetts.

The guilty verdicts in the George Floyd murder trial are a defining moment for the family of George Floyd, those of us who support the Black community and all who value justice.  We realize that for Black Americans, the struggle for justice is ongoing and we stand in solidarity with all who experience the pain of injustice.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Mr. Floyd and to our employees, members and fellow allies in the struggle for justice.  We recognize the importance of this milestone. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
