Quotable

“Yesterday’s guilty verdict of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was a step in the right direction toward justice and accountability. As crucial as it is, this verdict is just the beginning of the fight to dismantle the racism embedded in our criminal justice system. More work is needed to eliminate systems of oppression and disparity in equity, equality, and access in our country. I am encouraged by the dedication of the NAMIC community and its many allies who continue to work toward a more inclusive workplace community. Their commitment to developing and nurturing multicultural leaders, telling diverse stories, and implementing representative programming will help move our nation forward.”
– NAMIC pres/CEO Shuanise Washington regarding the verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin
