As the state and nation continue to reflect on the death of George Floyd and its aftermath one year later, many, like Minneapolis activist Spike Moss, continue to call for justice and police accountability reform. Moss says the partisan divide in Minnesota and DC make it difficult to be hopeful…

“So you can’t be optimistic about something that’s not really happening, what you can do have a spirit to keep pushing until you get what you want, have a spirit to get up every morning regardless and keep fighting.”

Moss says that if reform is not enacted to hold police more accountable, there will be “no hope” for people of color in this country.
