Title

Wash Your Hands / R.I.P. George

Coverage

3800 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55407

Description

A small flyer from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) reads "Wash Your Hands" in bold red font. The text is surrounded by translations of the sentence in black font in Swahili, German, French, Khmer, Laotian, Oromo, Somali, Hebrew, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese (Mandarin), Ojibwe, KaRen, Nepali, Korean, Hindi, and Russian.

The flyer at first glance appears to have fallen by mistake, but is now part of the memorial composed by the public in tribute to George Floyd at the intersection that he was murdered at outside of Cup Foods in South Minneapolis. The memorial includes objects such as flowers, stuffed animals, seashells, handmade crafts, handwritten notes, and potted plants.
