Amalgamated Bank's response to the Chauvin verdict
April 20, 2021

Amalgamated Bank affirms the decision to hold George Floyd’s murderer accountable for his actions. However, innocent Black people continue to die every day at the hands of the police. This violence must end now, and although Derek Chauvin will be punished, that is not enough to fix the systemic racism deeply ingrained in the criminal justice system and our larger society. Amalgamated Bank is committed to more than a one line statement; our commitment today and every day is to use our voice and resources to fight for justice for Black people, and we call on others to do the same.
