As the trial for Derek Chauvin continues, community activists are speaking out about justice for George Floyd and accountability for the officers involved. Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) Executive Director Jaylani Hussein told protestors earlier this week…

“We are demanding justice for the countless lives that are not being filled, the countless lives that have been ignored and that have come under the brutality of the Minneapolis Police Department, the St. Paul Police department, and the state of Minnesota and this country of the United States. We stand with them.”

Hussein is also calling on legislators across the country to pass laws ensuring police accountability.
