What a “coincidence” Republicans are launching bitter attacks on well-qualified DOJ nominees @KristenClarkeJD & @VanitaGuptaCR—who will enforce voting rights At the same time Republicans across the country are pushing voter suppression efforts. @SenWhitehouse breaks it down: https://t.co/7lpa7hh1ML

This is so important. 360+ Republican voter suppression bills have been introduced across the country in 2021 alone. @VanitaGuptaCR will protect the sacred right to vote for every American. Today, we will #ConfirmGupta https://t.co/xWgse1vlIy

Republicans are pushing voter suppression laws like the one in Georgia all across the country. It’s despicable. We’re working to pass the #ForThePeopleAct and #RestoreTheVRA to fight this voter suppression and renew democracy. https://t.co/sweGsBI7rI

Republican Senator John Kennedy asks @StaceyAbrams to give him a list of provisions in Georgia’s new voter suppression law that she objects to. It’s a long list. Give it a listen: https://t.co/9R57K0HPfN

While today’s guilty verdict was just and right, we cannot mistake accountability for justice. True justice would mean George Floyd was still alive today. This must be a turning point in our country to reform a broken justice system that has failed Black Americans over and over. https://t.co/cYPSnGznwY

Justice is served. Accountability for George Floyd's murder is important & necessary. But it’s not enough—we still must fix this deeply broken system. Today I’m thinking about George Floyd’s family, his daughter & his loved ones as they continue to mourn this unspeakable loss.

Today’s verdict affirming Derek Chauvin’s responsibility for killing George Floyd is the right outcome in this trial, but it is not justice. Congress must pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to help end this cycle of violence. My full statement ⬇️ https://t.co/cZ11249elY

While our justice system worked today, George Floyd should still be alive. My heart remains with the Floyd family. We have so much work to do to bring an end to hate and senseless violence, and to reform how we conduct policing in America.

Real justice would be George Floyd being alive today. Today’s verdict is only one step in the march to justice. That destination will be reached only when accountability like today’s verdict becomes the rule of law. https://t.co/QyVo9XeAMf

George Floyd was murdered at the hands of Derek Chauvin who betrayed his oath to protect and serve. While this verdict won’t bring George Floyd back, it brings his family and our nation closer to some semblance of justice and reminds us all that accountability is still possible.

Derek Chauvin is rightfully being held accountable for the murder he committed. And we must work to ensure that full accountability is also afforded in each and every case where Black Americans have been killed by public safety officers in horrific violations of justice.

No jury’s decision can return George Floyd to the safety of his family’s arms. No single verdict can demolish the structural racism that still plagues our country. But today, the jury reached the right conclusion.

The images of George Floyd’s death shocked our collective conscience, and the case against Mr. Chauvin was overwhelming. This is the right decision.

George Floyd should be with us today. And so should too many other Black men, women, and children. We need justice in every single trial and an America where justice and equality are a reality for all of us. That's what I'll keep fighting for.

The image of Derek Chauvin staring straight into the camera as George Floyd died under his knee haunts me to this day. The injustice of his killing is undeniable. And so is the fact that systemic racism continues to plague America.
