Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on Verdict in Derek Chauvin Murder Trial

April 20, 2021

In response to the announcement of Derek Chauvin being found guilty in the trial for the murder of George Floyd, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement:

“This guilty verdict only confirms what we already know – that police officer Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd, an innocent Black man, in cold blood. Though this verdict is one step towards justice, it will not bring back George Floyd, nor the countless Black Americans killed at the hands of law enforcement. I am praying for the Floyd family as they continue grieving their insurmountable loss, and I am praying for the country as we heal from this national tragedy and carry on in the march towards justice and equality. This verdict does not signal the end of our work – it is only just the beginning.”
