Democratic lawmakers observed the silence for nearly nine minutes, the length of time Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck.

Before introducing the police reform bill today, top Democrats — all clad in kente stoles — knelt together on the floor to honor Floyd and other black Americans killed by police.

Democrats in the House and Senate decided to wear African patterned cloth and take a knee for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in honor of George Floyd.
