From Assemblymember Luz Rivas Desk – Condolences to the Family of George Holliday

Condolences to the Family of George Holliday

My condolences to the family of George Holliday, a former #LakeViewTerrace and #AD39 resident, who passed away. George was responsible for recording Rodney King’s beating.

George’s courage to share this footage with the nation shined a light on the injustices our communities of color face every day, and brought on the advent of citizen journalism. This type of journalism would go on to play a critical role in the trial seeking justice for #GeorgeFloyd’s death and pushes for more accountability in our local communities.

Rest in peace, George Holliday.
