To facilitate the strengthening of relationships between people from all racial communities, with the goal of promoting understanding that will bring about true change on the issues of racial equality and social justice.
To be the global resource for the development of skills, resources, and accessibility to services in order to peacefully address personal and societal crisis situations.
To develop, implement, and integrate social justice educational programs for elementary through university level programs; to create community social justice resources and programs; and to provide scholarships for students pursuing social justice and civil rights degrees. Additionally, A Soulful Heart will be sponsoring the George Floyd Traveling Museum Tour, a national tour with A-list performers, as well as George Floyd memorabilia. There will also be interactive media depicting the impact of George's murder on the Social Justice Movement.
To establish the George Floyd, Jr. International Center For Social Justice (the "Floyd Center") in Washington, D.C. This social justice campus will be an international center promoting social justice through speakers, conferences, youth educational programs; and will contain a theatre, conference rooms, library, executive offices, bookstore, and café, as well as permanently housing the George Floyd Traveling Museum. The grounds of the Floyd Center will have a memorial garden containing a marble wall engraved with the names of victims of racially-motivated murders.
"The moment I learned of George's death, my heart both stopped and forever changed. As I watched the life drain from my nephew's body, I knew it was not the first time this had happened, but it was the first time the world had borne witness to it.
In the midst of my despair, I was comforted by the thought that George's death had touched and deeply affected the humanity in each of us. Through this horrific injustice, our hearts felt a collective grief, and from that grief arose a thundering outcry for justice and awareness that literally has changed the world.
I knew I had to do something to keep the memory of my nephew and his sacrifice as vibrant as he was, so along with Stephen Davis and Love McCall, we created the non-profit, 'A Soulful Heart Memorializing George Floyd, Jr.' as a vehicle for change. It is an ambitious undertaking, but one to which I am now dedicating my life, in remembrance of the man I loved so dearly.
I hope you will join me on this journey towards universal compassion, respect, and the understanding that we are stronger when we focus on the similarities - and not the differences - among us."
George Perry Floyd, Jr.
The world was still revolving yet the human eyes, mind, and heart were in devastation of the brutal murder of George Floyd Jr.
Are they going to stop? Are they going to stop? One is asking, pondering, and wondering.
Please! Please! I can’t breathe….
Mama……Yes, my son.
Yes, my father.
Yes, my brother.
Yes, my husband.
Yes, my cousin.
Yes, my uncle.
Yes, my friend.
Yes, my nephew.
We must fight to do a natural ability from birth- breathe. 9:29.
Do you acknowledge I have a genuine purpose in this earthly life? How dare you make the decision that you can continue to take life from another human? Did you think our worldly brothers and sisters would not react, rethink, revise, and replicate boldly? 9:29.
We have an obligation with A Soulful Heart to unite. Join our movement to promote a positive elevation of change, human kindness, righteousness, unity, and love.
