When the video of George Floyd being murdered by Derek Chauvin among other police officers went viral, we along with the world were shocked. Absolutely inconceivable actions from a person of the law, quite rightly he has been sentenced, but that is not enough. 

We at Maison de Choup are committed to sharing messages of change, positive or negative, having an impact is one of our goals, so we couldn't stand by and watch. We as a company are and always will be an EEO employer.
