Statement from Penn President Amy Gutmann regarding the verdict in the Derek Chauvin case

Today’s verdict is an important step towards justice in this case, but we as a campus community and a country have much more to do in our work toward racial justice and healing. Our thoughts are with Mr. Floyd’s family and we hope that the jury’s verdict brings them some measure of comfort. We must and we will continue to work with renewed resolve to ensure that the University and our nation move ever closer to fulfilling our pledge of liberty and justice for all.
