Andrew Yang Statement on Guilty Verdict in the Derek Chauvin Trial
**RELEASE** April 20th, 2021
New York, NY—Following Derek Chauvin being found guilty of the murder of George Floyd, Andrew Yang released the following statement:
“For nine minutes and twenty-nine seconds last summer, our nation watched in horror as George Floyd’s life was taken from him in an unconscionable act of police brutality. “As is every death caused by those who are trusted to protect our communities and keep us safe, George Floyd’s murder wasn’t just injustice, it was inhuman. “Police mistreatment of Black and brown Americans is both a painful, deadly reality for too many, and a moral stain on our society. “We have a long way to go. We must all remember that today’s verdict is the first step towards healing in our communities, not the accomplishment of deep and lasting reform to police culture. “As we have every day since his murder, today is yet another day to mourn George Floyd’s passing. But we must also use this moment to begin a relentless pursuit of justice for the countless Black and Brown women, men, and trans people who have been killed at the hands of the police. In Minneapolis, in New York City, and across the country. “We must continue to hold George’s family very close, and the family of Daunte Wright, and every other family who has lost a loved one at the hands of the police. “There are far too many other families who have borne the brunt of grief and loss who have not yet seen justice, but today’s verdict is one step in the right direction."
