MPSI Statement on the Derek Chauvin Verdict
by MPSI Board of Directors
As an organization dedicated to individual and societal well-being, we are relieved that a step toward accountability and justice has been demonstrated through the verdict of Derek Chauvin. At the same time, the grieving and mourning process continues, as our community and our nation continues to witness violence stemming from hatred, racism, and abuse of power. No single set of words or verdicts can take away the pain and trauma which results from more than 400 years of oppression and abuse. We recognize that the roots of systemic and cultural racism run deep and wide. We affirm that it is our individual and collective responsibility to listen, learn, and grow so that we can not only be allies, but also agents of change.
