MSP NOMA Statement of Chauvin Verdict

Yesterday was a moment of collective breath, a moment that allowed us all to rejoice in the knowledge that one of the four offenders has met the consequences of their actions.

Today, we must acknowledge that the work has only begun. Although Derek Chauvin has been held accountable, real justice must come from dismantling a system based on systemic racism and the status quo that continues to allow tragedies like this to occur. This statement is not meant to suppress the joy of the moment, as joy and sorrow can coexist, but rather, it is a call to action.

We are all accountable for moving equity and justice forward; moving towards a society where systemic racism is not prevalent, and ultimately does not exist. This is not your work alone. It can’t be. Working in solidarity with others is an incredible way to build collective power for change. What matters most is that we know who we are, we have a vision, and we are listening to the people who are impacted by all of our collective actions.

In light of COVID-19 state and federal measures we are postponing all in-person MSP NOMA related events until further notice. As many firms and businesses are temporarily closing and going to a remote office model, we want to ensure everyone’s safety and help prevent the spread of the virus. We will provide updates when we are able to reschedule the events we did have planned for March and April. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Please reach out with any needs, we are here to support you in any way we are able.
