The Norristown Municipal Council shares the world’s outrage about the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and all other senseless and dehumanizing assaults on people of color and other disenfranchised minorities. The Council and the Norristown community at large have always celebrated the diversity of our community and see it as one of our greatest strengths. We take pride in the fact that our community recognizes that the Norristown Police Department is a community police department and continuously works to support our residents and keep them safe.
We support people’s First Amendment right to peaceful assembly and ask that everyone honor the spirit of our community with civility and respect. We also ask that, in the interest of public health and welfare, that everyone practices social distancing and wear a mask.
