Statement from Indiana Fever Head Coach Marianne Stanley

“I am sickened by the horrifying killing of George Floyd, which came from the hands of those who swore an oath to protect and serve the citizens of Minneapolis. It is heartbreaking to witness last week’s disturbing events and accept this is America in 2020. For too long, we have failed to address the uncomfortable and painful truth of racism in our country.

Nobody should feel the loss of a loved one because of this continuous and senseless violence. We are better than this. Now is the time for real change.

Accountability and change will only happen if all of us demand it. I will forever stand alongside those who seek equality and justice.”
