To our Black staff and listeners, we support you and know the fight continues. The conviction of Derek Chauvin signals a level of accountability in George Floyd’s tragic murder. It doesn’t ease the pain, grief, or loss experienced by Mr. Floyd’s family and his community.

George Floyd is a human being whose life mattered. While the verdict is a step in the right direction, it does not ensure the safety of Black and Brown people from racial violence, discrimination, and disparities. The killings of Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, and Ma’Khia Bryant all serve as examples of Black and Brown lives cut senselessly short. Our sympathy and condolences are with all of their families and the communities in which they lived. The pursuit of systemic and transformational change requires changing minds and behaviors that perpetuate racial injustice. This is our ongoing collective responsibility.
