Floyd’s death has become the catalyst for a larger conversation regarding racial injustice and police brutality, renewing discussions around not only Black men who have been killed by police under questionable circumstances, but also Black women such as Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, and more.

Derek Chauvin, one of four now-fired Minneapolis police officer, is currently facing charges of manslaughter and third-degree murder. Floyd’s family has urged Attorney General Keith Ellison to charge Chauvin with the higher charge of first-degree murder.

The memorial service begins at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT. The service can be viewed below.
