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.
