Today, Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) released the following statement after the jury announced guilty verdicts against Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd:
"The entire country bore witness to the murder of George Floyd. The jury believed their own eyes and rendered a just verdict. But while justice prevailed this time, far too many Black lives have been cut short with no such accountability. We owe them real, structural change."
