Kansas Gov. Kelly pledges action against systemic racism
Gov. Laura Kelly on Monday vowed tough conversations and action aimed at combating systemic racism in Kansas institutions in response to what she called the “tragic murder” of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Protesters have marched for the last several days in cities in Kansas and nationwide after Floyd's death last week.
The Democratic governor said she’s asked her team to give the issue their full attention and to come up with a plan to “take action in earnest.”
She said her heart goes out to those reliving the trauma of violence and systemic racism.
