Today the Lancaster County Democratic Committee recognizes the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial. He was found guilty on all three counts. This is the best outcome we could have hoped for. As far as justice goes, it cannot be served until there are no more unjust killings of black and brown people by law enforcement. Thousands of black and brown families have pain and grief which cannot be eliminated or reduced by a trial verdict. Justice for them would have their loved ones still with us.
There is so much work to do to protect and celebrate the lives of our sisters and brothers. We must transform our communities and country, provide real public safety for everyone. We are committed to doing that work, to bring this kind of true justice in Lancaster County and Pennsylvania.
