In the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin, charged in the death of George Floyd the verdict is in: guilty on all charges. Our guests today include Darlene McDonald, of the Utah Black Roundtable and a member of the Salt Lake City Commission on Racial Equity in Policing; Rep. Sandra Hollins, D-Salt Lake City; and Rep. Angela Romero, D-Salt Lake City.

Last summer Darlene McDonald said: “Once the protests end and the streets become quiet, it is imperative that we not lose focus. We must redefine a new normal in policing.” We’ll talk about systemic racism, police reform and related topics in the aftermath of this trial. You can continue the conversation now by emailing upraccess@gmail.com.
