If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”

Frederick Douglass


Since the horrific killing of George Floyd, the outrage and international public outcry continue be felt and heard around the world.  It was an act that shook humanity, sending shock waves around the globe. Corporations, activists, celebrities, and everyday civilians have expressed solidarity for the grave injustice done to George Floyd, calling for an end to police brutality, and an end to the systemic racial injustice that plagues this country and global nations.  

In response, future doctors of Downstate—Emergency Medicine Resident Physicians, along with their colleagues from Downstate’s 51 other residency and fellowship programs—powerfully showcased their respect for black lives, as well as their commitment to black and brown communities, on Clarkson Avenue with a staged “Die-In” demonstration.
