(CNN)Keith Ellison said Derek Chauvin being found guilty in the murder of George Floyd last week was just the first victory in a long road to racial justice and police reform.
Ellison said he will also remember the people who changed him.
"I think I'm going to remember the courage of those people who stopped for a complete stranger," Ellison said.
Ellison said last week he wouldn't call Chauvin's verdict justice.
"Justice implies true restoration," Ellison said.
"Justice means that we can truly have public safety and civil and human rights together, at the same time," Ellison said.
There are still many people who don't want to call the police department because they're afraid that bringing the police into a situation may make it worse, Ellison said, and that needs to be addressed.
"We need to past George Floyd Justice in Policing Act," Ellison said.
We really should know how many people die in deadly force encounters with the police," Ellison said.
The continuing conflicts between the police and the communities they serve "have got to come to come to an end," Ellison said.
