Today’s Action: Take action for Breonna Taylor

It’s been more than four months since Breonna Taylor’s door was broken down by unannounced cops “searching” for a suspect they had already apprehended and firing twenty-five times, hitting Breonna with eight bullets and killing her. Of the three officers who murdered her, two still have their jobs, and none of them have been charged.

We must not give up, or take our foot off the gas – justice for Breonna Taylor has gone unanswered for far too long, and we know Kentucky leadership will not do the right thing on their own without unceasing national public pressure.

Bring Breonna Taylor’s killers to justice by contacting Kentucky and Louisville leadership, demanding they arrest and charge Myles Cosgrove, Brett Hankison, and Jonathan Mattingly:

1,945 Black people were killed by law enforcement between 2013-2019. We must continue to press against the normalization of our law enforcement’s dismissal of Black lives and refusal to hold officers accountable for reckless violence. Take action today for Breonna Taylor, and for all Black Americans.

PS — The protests have continued across the nation and have not caused an upticks in viral cases – unlike reopening indoor public spaces too soon – as the protests are in the open air and the vast majority of protesters wear masks and take safety precautions. We encourage you to proactively consider attending, while assessing your risk factors and maintaining careful social distancing and sanitizing whenever possible.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding Trump’s GOP other enablers to stop contradicting experts with lies that are killing people, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
