Black Lives Matter. Today’s verdict in State v. Chauvin finding former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts is a start in seeking justice and accountability. While today’s verdict is a step in the right direction, the racial discrimination and violence that precipitated George Floyd’s murder and consistently harm Black Americans throughout our nation are vile injustices that we must continue to confront. Collectively, we must move forward together on this journey to dismantle systems of racial inequality and ensure equal protection and access to justice for all under the law. Lane Powell remains fully committed to doing the work necessary to bring enduring societal change.
