Statement on the Trial of Jeronimo Yanez

We are outraged that the justice system failed today, yet again. Today’s verdict serves as a reminder that the work toward racial justice must continue.

Mr. Castile was a beloved part of the J.J. Hill Montessori Magnet School. The Saint Paul Federation of Teachers is committed to supporting the staff and community members who are deeply impacted by today’s verdict.

We are keeping Philando Castile’s family in our thoughts and prayers.

Rest in power, Philando
