Dear Friends of Huckleberry Youth Programs,
Yesterday, we collectively held our breath awaiting the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial. The fact that we were unsure of the outcome speaks volumes about the work ahead of us toward racial justice in this country.
Although Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges, nothing will bring George Floyd back to his friends and family. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Daunte Wright, and yesterday, moments before the verdict was read, 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. All were victims of excessive police force against the Black community. There is no justice until there is racial equity and an end to police brutality. There is only accountability.
The New York Times reported today that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland is investigating the Minneapolis police department, a significant step forward in terms of holding more police accountable for misconduct. But the work does not end there. As the Attorney General stated, “the challenges we face are deeply woven into our history.”
At Huckleberry, we stand with our youth who are strong, resilient, and deserving of a world without fear of being harmed at the hands of law enforcement. Young people like Darnella Frazier, who was 17 years old when she had the presence of mind to document George Floyd’s murder on her phone. Our youth demand justice and an end to systemic oppression, not just accountability.
Douglas Styles, PsyD.
