House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chair Joyce Beatty (D-OH) led a press conference with members of the CBC following former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s conviction of guilty of second- and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in connection to the death of Mr. Floyd, a Black man who died while in police custody in May 2020. The video of Mr. Floyd’s arrest sparked nationwide protests. “This verdict, we certainly agree with, guilty on all charges, but we want our message to be very clear that this is just the first step. We know clearly that justice has been delayed,” said the CBC chair. “We are hopeful that today will be the catalyst to turn the pain, the agony, the justice delayed into actions that go far beyond today.” Speaker Pelosi said she spoke with the family of George Floyd earlier in the day and called on Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. close
