Philadelphia – April 20, 2021 – Sen. Anthony H. Williams (D- Philadelphia/Delaware) released the following statement on the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd:
“In the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd we see not justice, but accountability. We as Black Americans, and other communities of color, still have a long road to justice and the dismantling of systemic racism.
I hope that the people of my community, and in communities around the world, will find comfort in this verdict. This is a small beginning in the curve our country is turning toward true justice for all people.”
