George Floyd will not be forgotten. The verdict against Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd is a step in the right direction for our justice system, but it is far from true justice. Justice would be George Floyd alive and with us today. Justice would be no more names added to the list of those killed by police.
According to the New York Times, since testimony in the Chauvin trial began on March 29, 2021 more than three people a day have been killed by police. More than half of those killed were Black or Latinx.
Now is the time to be proactive and to make our actions count. Gibbs Law Group will continue to support the Black Lives Matter movement in any way that we can. We stand with our Black and Brown communities and demand justice.
George Floyd will not be forgotten. We will never stop saying his name.
