About the Event
This May 27-28, 2022 The George Floyd Memorial Center will seek to initiate the first steps from perpetual trauma to global transformation.
The tragedy of George Floyd’s untimely death is a story that moved the world to face the continued inequalities in many underserved communities in our nation and across the globe. The mission of the George Floyd Memorial Center is to promote racial, social, and economic justice. At the heart of this mission is the wellbeing of these underserved communities. How do we address the health, wealth, and education inequities? We do so by bringing together professionals in these fields, along with community stakeholders to ask the right questions, produce action goals, then put into practice actionable solutions.
May 25, 2022 marks the second anniversary of the death of George Floyd. May 25th has been dubbed the “Day of Enlightenment” by the George Floyd Memorial Center (5/25 D.O.E.). A special program featuring the Urbanistic Art segment of the center, will be presented on that day, as well as an opportunity to share personal sentiments of how the death of George changed you.
On May 27 and 28th, the center will host its 1st Annual Weekend of Enlightenment, featuring the GFMC Golf Tournament on Friday at Lochmere Golf Club in Cary, NC. and a conference and gala, Saturday at the Marriott Crabtree in Raleigh, NC.
