Plummer Building lighted as sign of hope and to remember George Floyd
On Saturday, May 30, Mayo Clinic will light the Plummer Building in Rochester yellow as a sign of hope for the days to come in conjunction with a virtual vigil being held to remember George Floyd.
Mr. Floyd died on Monday from injuries inflicted by a police officer who was arrested on Friday for his actions. The virtual vigil is being organized by community leaders in Rochester.
"Mayo Clinic stands with those who fight for equity and justice, and will continue to work toward a more equitable and inclusive place to deliver and receive care," says Sharonne Hayes, M.D., medical director for Diversity and Inclusion.
