Moving forward after the Derek Chauvin trial

Moving forward after the Derek Chauvin trial.

"The verdict is in on the Derek Chauvin trial, and he has been held accountable for the injustice that occurred to George Floyd. We can breathe a collective sigh of relief that jurors reached the verdict they did. With that being said, the nation must sustain its quest for systemic change to its criminal justice system, to ultimately make such episodes exceedingly rare. This verdict is not a replacement for systemic change. Rather, it makes space for us to move ahead. We still have much work to do in this regard." -Gregory Washington
