Success: Chauvin Found Guilty of All Charges in Death of George Floyd

Target: Keith Ellison, Attorney General of Minnesota

Goal: Support conviction of police officer in death of George Floyd.

“I can’t breathe.” These three words and nine minutes of video changed America and the world. The George Floyd case sparked a global movement that raised fundamental questions about race relations and police brutality. The signers of this ForceChange petition joined other voices demanding justice for a man who lost his life on a Minnesota roadside…under the knee of a police officer sworn to serve and protect.

After weeks of wrenching testimony, the jury came to a verdict in the trial of former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin. The defendant was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. He was found guilty on each charge. The attorney general leading the case called this moment one of accountability and an important step toward true justice.

Sign the petition below to thank the prosecutor who helped make this decisive day possible.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Ellison,

In the media and public firestorm that surrounds high-profile cases, the victims are often lost. George Floyd was more than a symbol or a cause. He was a father, a community member, and above all a human being. Despite all the controversies and the debates, thank you for not losing sight of this man.

Thank you for fighting for him and his memory and for validating with every piece of evidence presented and every word spoken that his life mattered.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
