The L.A. Rams continued to be pillars in the greater Los Angeles community on Monday.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reported that the organization has dispatched several of their employees to Santa Monica, California, to assist in the cleanup effort after protests over the weekend led to looting and vandalism.
just an FYI: @RamsNFL are lending a hand today by sending a large crew of employees to Santa Monica to help with the clean up after a weekend of protests.— Vincent Bonsignore (@VinnyBonsignore) June 1, 2020
Protests began around the country following the death of George Floyd — an African American man who died after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was filmed, with his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes. Chauvin has since been fired, and was arrested on murder and manslaughter charges last Friday. Three other police officers on the scene were all fired but not yet arrested.
The fact that the Rams are assisting the community is on brand for them.
They have done a tremendous job in the Los Angeles community since moving back to L.A. from St. Louis in 2016.
This much-needed gesture is another example of the Rams’ benevolence in their community.
