This guide attempts to help document the federal response to civil protests following the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.
The guide compiles statements and actions from federal officials and offices. Sources regularly reviewed include:
The White House (including @WhiteHouse and @realDonaldTrump on Twitter)
Congressional leaders and relevant committees and caucuses
Department of Justice (and agencies such as the FBI and ATF)
Department of Defense and military offices
Secret Service, United States Park Police
Department of Homeland Security
National Park Service
U.S. Commission on Civil Rights
The guide does not include newspaper or other press reports, unless those reports include primary source documents or media from federal officials. If possible, each link is captured in the Wayback Machine.
