This week on The Tent, Daniella and Jesse react to the conclusion of the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who murdered George Floyd last May. Brookings Institution fellow Rashawn Ray joins the pod to dig into what the jury’s guilty verdict means and where police reform in the United States goes from here. Our hosts also reflect on Earth Day and the White House’s effort to lead the world on addressing climate change with an international summit.
