Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) issued the following statement after ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd.

“Today’s guilty verdict is a pivotal moment for policing in America,” said Congresswoman Williams. “The conviction of Derek Chauvin sends the message that we can and will hold officers accountable. But, it’s important to note this is only the beginning. This one case, this instance of justice, is what is deserved and overdue for so many other families.

“Although nothing can bring George Floyd back, my hope is that his family can find some solace in knowing that justice was served.

“We are done dying.”
