Statement from NSC President & CEO Lorraine M. Martin on Verdict in Derek Chauvin Trial

Verdict is a measure of accountability.

April 21, 2021

Itasca, IL – “While justice would have George Floyd alive with his family, friends and community, yesterday’s guilty verdict is a welcome measure of accountability. Too often, safety is the privilege of a few — not a right enjoyed equitably by all. The National Safety Council remains committed to eradicating safety disparities caused by racism and injustice experienced by communities of color. To truly be safe, a person must feel safe. Anything less is unacceptable.”
