George Floyd was honored with a moment of silence in the city where he died at the hands of police one year ago as his family met US President Joe Biden.

Iran PressAmerica: Floyd's family visited Washington on Tuesday to meet with US President Joe Biden and prod Congress to act as they commemorate the loss of their brother, father and son one year ago.

Floyd, 46, an African American, died on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis after then-police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck, pinning him to the ground for more than nine minutes. Chauvin, who is white, was convicted last month of murder and faces sentencing June 25. Three other fired officers still face trial.

Floyd's death captured on wrenching bystander video galvanized the racial justice movement and continues to ripple a year later. 219
