PDG STATEMENT ON JUSTICE FOR GEORGE FLOYD


“The jury in the trial of Derek Chauvin issued a verdict today that was a clear declaration of justice in the murder of George Floyd. It is our hope that this monumental case will set the tone for greater police accountability so that trials such as this are no longer necessary. Although gratified by today’s decision, we remain sober by the reality that George Floyd’s life was unjustly extinguished, and that so many other fathers, husbands, brothers and sisters continue to suffer a similar fate. We must get to a point where we expect justice in the country not as a singular act, but as a pattern and practice always.”
