The Packers released a video statement today on the ongoing protests around the country.

Watch the Packers' powerful statement on the death of George Floyd, protests

As protests in the name of justice, racial equality and police reform have grown across the country and the entire globe, brands have decided to try to speak up as well – ranging from the impressive to the laughably tone-deaf.

The Green Bay Packers' recently released video statement, posted on social media Thursday morning, lands in the former category.

In the video – captioned "Enough is enough. It's time for change" – Packers players including Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Aaron Jones, head coach Matt LaFleur and many more speak against systemic racism as well as call for action, police reform and legislative changes.

Watch for yourself:

In the world of bland corporate statements, it's a strong and often personal call to action that hopefully encourages people to join the peaceful protests and donate to organizations making a difference, as well as push toward correcting injustices past, present and into the future.

The Milwaukee Brewers and the Milwaukee Bucks have also released statements on the death of George Floyd and the ensuing protests this week, which you can read here and here.
