April 20, 2021
Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Liz Walters released the following statement after a Minnesota jury found Derek Chauvin guilty on three counts in the death of George Floyd.
“While the jury reached the right decision, no verdict will change the fact that George Floyd should still be alive today. We all have much more work to do in the fight for racial justice and for a fairer legal and criminal justice system. Our hearts are with Mr. Floyd’s family and loved ones, as well as with Ohioans who have been hurting as we watched this trial unfold.”
