Atlanta, GA – In response to today’s verdict in the Ahmaud Arbery murder trial, Georgia Conservation Voters Executive Director Brionté McCorkle issued the following statement:

“We are relieved with today’s guilty verdicts in the murder trial of Ahmaud Arbery. This result is the conclusion of 18 months of pain, grief and loss that the family of Ahmaud Arbery and the community of Brunswick, Georgia have experienced since his murder in February, 2020. 

As we continue our fight for a more just and equitable society, we remember those we have unjustly lost and pray for a brighter future where trials like these are relegated as relics of a darker past.

We remain grateful to witness justice for Ahmaud Arbery’s family and earnestly hope that this will serve as a step towards peace and healing for all the families and communities involved in bringing this verdict.”
