Gov. Evers Releases Statement on Verdict in Chauvin Trial


By - Apr 20th, 2021 05:55 pm

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today released the following statement on the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial.

“There’s no verdict that can bring peace to loved ones when someone is taken from them. My heart and thoughts are with George Floyd’s family, his loved ones, and the entire community.

“While this is a moment of accountability in our justice system and our country, we are reminded that justice for Black lives is not a moment—it requires meaningful, sustained, and systemic change.

“Today’s verdict doesn’t replace the changes we must make to keep our promises of a more fair and more equitable state and country. Every day—and especially today—we must reaffirm and resolve to continue our work toward justice.”
