NASW Georgia Chapter stands with NASW in stating we are relieved that justice has been served and former Minneapolis police officer #derekchauvin has been found guilty on all three counts in the death of #georgefloyd. We again offer sympathies 

to his family and friends. We also again request Congress pass policing reform legislation and urge the Senate to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act authored by #socialworker Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA). This legislation has already passed the U.S. House of Representatives.
Despite this legal victory, much work remains to be done to end excessive use of force by law enforcement and improve the way police interact with people from communities of color.
