Navigator Stands in Solidarity with Protestors
Navigator Research stands in solidarity with all of the protestors, and with Black and Brown people across the country, who are demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, David McAtee, and countless others who have been killed and brutalized by a racist criminal justice system and a state which continues to fan the flames of white supremacy and hate.
Racism is deeply ingrained in American society and we must all do our part to atone for the nation’s history of genocide and slavery as well as dismantle its systemic oppression of Black, Brown, and Indigenous peoples. To effect change, we must demand that the necessary reforms be made to address America’s current crisis: demilitarizing the police, calling for an end of over policing of Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities, ending qualified immunity, and creating non-police first responder units. Navigator Research is committed to using our platform to lift up movements, tell critically important stories, and shape the debate toward justice and action.
In the coming weeks and beyond, Navigator plans to conduct new research to help the public better understand how Americans’ opinions on race, policing, and democracy are changing in these tumultuous times. Our content this week will continue to focus on the coronavirus pandemic and we will seek to highlight topical and important findings from other survey research organizations pertaining to the ongoing protests, policing, and racial injustice. In solidarity, Black Lives Matter.
