Senate Democrats held a moment of silence in the Capitol Thursday, with several choosing to kneel to pay respects to the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Van Hollen, Heinrich, Kaine and Michael Bennet are kneeling during this moment,” New York Times reporter Emily Cochrane tweeted as Democrats gathered for a moment of silence to pay tribute to those protesting the death of George Floyd Thursday.
Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown joined Sens. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, Tim Kaine of Virginia, Michael Bennet of Colorado, and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico in their protest by kneeling to the ground.
