CNN’s Van Jones said the guilty verdict today marks the beginning of the road to justice for many Americans, not the end.
“One down, many, many, many more to go,” said Jones, his voice cracking moments after hearing that Derek Chauvin had been found guilty on all three charges.
“This is the beginning of something, this is not the ending,” Jones continued, calling out Congress and the federal government for inaction on racial justice.
“Sometimes when we fight, we lose, but sometimes when we fight, we won,” he added. “The people won.”
