Justice For Breonna Taylor Act
Breonna Taylor was a 26-year old, award-winning EMT, who was shot and killed in her own home by police during the execution of a discriminatory, botched no-knock warrant.
The Justice for Breonna Act would effectively ban no-knock warrants on the federal level, ensuring that no American citizen will ever be killed so unjustly ever again.
Please help them meet their goal of blanketing the state of Kentucky with over 100 billboards, showing Mitch McConnell that the American people stand with Breonna Taylor and her family.
We can show our elected politicians that their power comes directly from the American public; they cannot continue to ignore our collective voices, they cannot continue to neglect our demands, and they cannot continue to disregard the death of an innocent woman.
Help us get justice for Breonna Taylor.
Help us ensure that nobody else dies the way she did.
Her life mattered.
