A Time for Justice
ASBC Statement on Chauvin Verdict
Washington, D.C. — The American Sustainable Business Council is relieved that Derek Chauvin has been held accountable for the murder of George Floyd. Our prayer is that this will bring some small measure of peace and comfort for Mr. Floyd’s family, as we wish the best for them and the friends of Mr. Floyd.
But this should be a beginning, not an end. Holding police accountable should not be a singular event. Achieving justice must not be a special occasion. We must take the next step to assuring, as Mr. Floyd’s daughter stated, that he truly “changed the world.”
We renew our call for the Senate to mark this moment by passing the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to assure equal justice, not just for George Floyd in this moment, but for all people for all time.
