Statement from Massachusetts AG Maura Healey and Nevada AG Aaron Ford, Co-Chairs of the Democratic Attorneys General Association

“Weeks ago, accountability for George Floyd’s killing was found in a Minneapolis courtroom. But accountability is not justice. Nothing can bring George Floyd back. To honor George Floyd, we must continue demanding justice.”

“Justice where Black men and women are not killed because of the color of their skin. Justice where Black men and women are not disproportionately harmed by our legal systems that are meant to serve all people equally. As Attorneys General, our work for racial equity must continue as our highest priority.”

“Hundreds of men and women of color have been killed by police since George Floyd’s murder. That is unacceptable. While our hearts are with George Floyd’s loved ones, our gaze is set on the work before us.”
