Challenging The Adversity To Diversity

Normally, we are here to cover the latest news on the commercial side of the AV industry on a weekly basis. But this has been a hard few weeks for many people. On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was killed when a police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed face down. Following his death, demonstrations and protests have been started in all fifty states and several places outside of the US protesting the use of excessive force, police accountability and systematic oppression against groups of color. In this time, we must do what we can, and as a podcast site, we are more than capable to at the very least start a conversation.
