People rallied in the U.S. and across the world to mark the first anniversary of George Floyd's death.
The big picture: Derek Chauvin, a white former Minneapolis police officer, was last month convicted of Floyd's May 25, 2020, murder. Floyd's killing triggered huge protests against police brutality and racism in the U.S. and around the world. Now, his family and civil rights leaders are calling on senators to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

Earlier today in the Oval Office, I met with George Floyd’s family. They’ve shown extraordinary courage over the last year, especially his young daughter Gianna, who I met again today. The day before her father’s funeral, she told me, “Daddy changed the world.”— President Biden (@POTUS) May 25, 2021
