Gamaliel statement on the Chauvin Trial Verdict

The Board of Directors, staff and affiliates of the Gamaliel Network join in prayer for the family of George Floyd, residents of Minneapolis and across the country, as the emotions of joy and jubilation flow in response to the historic verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial.

We realize that while justice is an unattainable ideal in these cases, we will continue to push for the accountability of those who recklessly enforce laws in this country and for legislative reform in states that continue to shield such misconduct through qualified immunity statutes.

The pressure of “good trouble” has only begun to build the dam that will eventually stop the turbulent flow of the waters of injustice.
