Derek Chauvin was found guilty today on all counts, including murder. We are holding community close tonight as we feel a sense of relief from the verdict.
However, this verdict does not undo the real injustice of George Floyd’s murder. George should be alive today. The verdict does not mark the end of the work that needs to be done, but reminds us of the power of our collective voice and action. We are all on stand now.
As educators and leaders we owe it to our students to hold anti-racism as the through-line in our work. We must work together to breathe life into better possibilities for students and youth.
