Andria McClellan Statement on the Verdict in the Derek Chauvin Trial

Norfolk Councilmember Andria McClellan, candidate for Lieutenant Governor, has released the following statement regarding the jury’s guilty verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin:

“I am relieved to see this movement toward accountability today. Black and brown people should not live in fear of being harmed by police; yet that is a reality for far too many, and it’s up to us to bring that to an end. While this single decision does not bring back George Floyd, let alone undo the harm from centuries of racial inequities and police violence, I hope it signals a future with more transparency and accountability. It is incumbent upon us to address the systemic racism in our society and build a more just future for all. Black Lives Matter.”
