RCDP Statement on the Criminal Conviction for the Murder of George Floyd

Today’s guilty verdict is an important step towards justice, but it comes with much too high a cost. George Floyd will never again see his family, and Black and Brown lives continue to be lost under scarily-similar circumstances.

While one guilty verdict in a single trial cannot solve systemic racism, it does give us hope, and reminds us of how much work we continue to have ahead of us to build a truly equitable and just world. Justice can only truly be measured in long-term societal change free of implicit bias at every level.

We honor the historic accountability achieved in the trial held for the murder of George Floyd; but remain dedicated to the need for justice for Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, and so many more.

In Solidarity,

Tisa Rodriguez, Chair

Riverside, CA – The deplorable acts of insurrection against our democracy were openly incited by President Trump, and fueled by Representative Ken Calvert and others.  Both men were elected to represent the will of the people, but have repeatedly and routinely ignored the majority of their constituents in favor of unconscionable decisions that continue to undermine the will of the people.

We support and applaud efforts in Congress to impeach Donald immediately.  The short length of this President’s remaining term of service does not absolve him of responsibility for inciting violence against our democracy.

Furthermore, we condemn the violence that occurred on January 6th and the acts of insurrection that are currently being planned by people who have no respect for life or for our country.  Patriotism means organizing peacefully and respectfully to improve the lives of all Americans.   It does not mean inciting hate. We plan to continue working patriotically under the new, duly elected administration.

Emmett Till Anti-Racism Pledge

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old African American boy who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955 after being accused of offending a white woman. The cruelness, barbarism, and brutality of his murder were heartbreaking.

His killers were acquitted.
