Pelosi tweets new response to Chauvin verdict after thanking George Floyd 'for sacrificing your life for justice'

"George Floyd should be alive today," Pelosi, a California Democrat, wrote in a tweet that quoted her remarks from earlier in the day. "His family's calls for justice for his murder were heard around the world. He did not die in vain. We must make sure other families don't suffer the same racism, violence & pain, and we must enact the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act."

"Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice," she said. "For being there to call out to your mom, how heartbreaking was that," Pelosi said during the news conference. "And because of you ... your name will always be synonymous with justice."

Pelosi also said she had spoken to Floyd's family around 3 p.m. ET Tuesday to thank them and bless them for their "grace and dignity."

Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, was convicted on all charges by a jury in the Hennepin County Court. The 12 jurors found him guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death on May 25, 2020.

Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty, a Democratic congresswoman from Ohio, said the group would continue working toward police reform.

"We will fight continuously for all of those who died or have been injured senselessly by law enforcement," she said.
