At LATV, we’re taking matters into our own hands. As a minority owned company, we stand strongly with those out there on the streets protesting peacefully against systemic racism and unjust brutality from our police force.
The racist history of police brutality against black and brown people has been well documented for a long time; however, it took the perfect storm of a worldwide pandemic combined with the killing of George Floyd at the hands of an officer who kneeled on his neck for almost nine minutes to finally bring attention to the glaring injustice ingrained in police culture across the country.
Many of us protested alongside our fellow Angelenos, while others helped clean graffiti and broken glass from the city streets in Santa Monica and West Hollywood. Black lives matter, now and always.
