One step closer
Jun 3, 2020 —
Hi everyone – Last Sunday night, the Governor of Minnesota said that Attorney General Keith Ellison will take the lead on prosecutions of the four officers responsible for George Floyd’s murder. And he’s just announced new charges: ALL FOUR OFFICERS WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.
Derek Chauvin – who knelt on George Floyd’s neck – has now been charged with second-degree murder. The other three officers have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
There are now 14 MILLION PEOPLE calling for justice for George Floyd through this petition, and protests have taken place in hundreds of cities. Thank you so much for using your voice to stand up for what is right. This call for justice is being heard around the world – and in Minnesota, where we’ve just seen a huge step toward justice.
But this petition was never about just charges. I asked you all, as signers, to tell me what justice is to you and got literally hundreds of video responses. Now I’m asking you to watch this video and share it on social media to show people that justice is about systemic change, and about people feeling safe in their daily lives. Here’s how you can help right now:
- Click here to see the video on Twitter and retweet

Thank you for keeping the fight for justice going,
Keep fighting for people power!
