Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement following the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial.
“This was the right decision. George Floyd should still be alive today. Though the pain experienced by Mr. Floyd’s family, Minneapolis, and all of America cannot be erased, this is a step toward justice. Black Lives Matter. Our work is far from done. We must continue working together to create a stronger, more inclusive justice system that protects all of our communities.”
