The Cocoon mourns with the families, communities and allies as we grieve the death of George Floyd and all of those whose lives have been tragically taken by violence.

As The Cocoon strives to be a community leader and transforming voice committed to creating social change, we condemn violence of any kind.

We must recognize the centuries of pain and discrimination inflicted on people of color and come together to raise our voices. Today, yesterday and in all the days to come, we stand in solidarity declaring black lives matter. Until we dismantle racism, oppression and injustice against the Black community, we cannot truly achieve safety, healing and justice for all.
