CAIR-Minnesota Welcomes Guilty Verdict in Trial of Derek Chauvin

MINNEAPOLIS, April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) today welcomed the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on all counts for the killing of George Floyd.

In response to the verdict, CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said:

“We are encouraged by the jury’s decision to convict Derek Chauvin. It is by no means the end of our efforts to build a more just and equitable Minnesota and nation, but it is an important milestone on our journey and a step to healing deep, generational traumas.

“While today’s verdict is encouraging, it does not diminish the urgency with which we must continue our efforts to combat the epidemic of police violence in our communities.

George Floyd received justice today in that courtroom, now we must continue advocating for justice for all, everywhere: in the legislature, where we’re fighting to pass bills to increase police oversight and end qualified immunity, in our own communities, where we come together to heal and build trust and mutual understanding, and in the streets, where every day we are organizing, marching, and strengthening our movement.”
