Floyd Rights replace the "objectively reasonable" standard for the use of force with the "absolutely necessary" standard as used by the European Convention of Human Rights. A suspect’s misbehaviors, indignation or disgraceful conduct never justify a police officer’s use of force unless it is "absolutely necessary" to prevent bodily harm to others. Lethal force is never justified unless actual, not perceived, exigencies exist that are absolutely necessary to prevent the loss of life. Together, we will bring about change.

Dr. Stuart Lord and Doug Katich first met in 1986 at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. Doug was then a freshman, and Stuart was the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and the University Chaplain at DePauw. As a freshman, Doug lettered on the DePauw University varsity football team, and he and Stuart would often meet-up at the university athletic center. Later into his college career, Doug became a student leader, and Stuart served as his mentor. They worked closely together, promoting local community service opportunities and student-led initiatives. As a senior, Doug became president of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity, and Stuart served as the fraternity's faculty advisor. Since their first meeting over thirty years ago, Stuart and Doug remained close friends to this day. The Floyd Rights Campaign came about during a conversation between Stuart and Doug while they were pondering a question they had been asked innumerable times: "How should I respond, and what can I do, about George Floyd's death and the tragedy of ongoing Police brutality?" The Floyd Rights is their answer to that question, and they feel this project will put an end to needless deaths and Police brutality. Please join Dr. Stuart Lord, Doug Katich, and the rest of the campaign members in this urgent mission and sign our petition. Together we can transition police from "Serve and Protect" to "Serve and Respect."
