Today will be remembered as a day when justice was served. Derek Chauvin was found guilty on the counts of murder and manslaughter of George Floyd. The Fredericksburg NAACP rejoices and is hopeful with this verdict.
Our communities are frustrated and saddened. As our country and local communities struggle with our responses to the shocking tragic murder of George Floyd by police and other actions of brutality against persons of color over the years, we are proud of much of the nation’s peaceful responses and calls to action.
