May 25, 2020 was the day Floyd died in Minneapolis after Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, knelt on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds. On the two-year anniversary after Floyd’s death, the group Project for Change organized an event at the Paul and Babe statues in Paul Bunyan Park.
There was also a candlelight vigil Wednesday in Minneapolis at the intersection where Floyd died as well as a vigil and rally at the Governor’s residence in St. Paul.
