Former Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson, one of the most beloved and widely respected players to have spent time with the organization, made a statement in a post on his Instagram account about the movement happening across the country following the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.

Here’s the full text of Granderson’s statement:

I am a Black Man. We are Black People. We are not alone.

If you want to see change, join us - all of us, every race and gender, coming together to BE the CHANGE we want to see.

If you’ve been ‘doing the work’ and supporting the movement with positive action, don’t stop. Do More!

If you don’t know what to do, ask, research, or find something that touches your heart and support it.

Together, we can create change for the future. Join us in breaking barriers, as one team.
