Washington, DC—Today, Representative John Curtis (R-UT) released the following statement:

“As the country waits for a final verdict on the Derek Chauvin trial, I have tremendous confidence in our judicial system. Even with its imperfections, I know of nothing equal to it in the world. However, it’s clear to me that crucial conversations that started with George Floyd’s death have only just begun and regardless of the outcome of the trial, there’s work to do ahead. Personally, the trial has helped me to deepen my commitment to listen better and try harder to be a unifying voice in a too often divisive world. I call on all Americans— and especially Utahns— to also focus on unity and respond to the verdict peacefully as we continue these important discussions.”
