Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on Verdicts Found in Trial for the Murder of Ahmaud Arbery

November 24, 2021

In response to the verdicts found in the trial for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement:

“These guilty verdicts only confirm what we already know – that Ahmaud Arbery, an innocent Black man, was killed in cold blood for nothing more than jogging while Black. While these verdicts are one step towards accountability, they will not bring back Ahmaud or the countless other lives we’ve lost at the hands of white supremacy. We must double down on our efforts to fight hatred, and we will not stop until no American’s life is cut short due to bigotry or reckless vigilantism. I am praying for the Arbery family as they continue grieving their insurmountable loss, for Brunswick as the community works to heal, and for the country as we carry on in the march towards justice.”
