Members of George Floyd’s family are thanking President Biden and Vice President Harris for meeting with them in the Oval Office. The private meeting marked the one-year anniversary of Floyd’s death.

George Floyd was an unarmed Black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis. Speaking outside the White House, family attorney Ben Crump said the President expressed an interest in signing a sweeping police reform bill as soon as possible. Floyd’s nephew Brandon Williams said the President wants it to be the “right bill.”
