We Can’t Send Her a Card...So We’re Sending a Message: Justice for Breonna Taylor NOW!

🚨ACTION ALERT🚨

🗣#SayHerName #BreonnaIsNotForgotten

TODAY #BreonnaTaylor would have turned 27 years old. A birthday that family and friends would be joyously celebrating with her. Instead, they are heart-broken, (still) crying out for answers and justice in her senseless killing!

On March 13th, the reckless and excessive actions of three Louisville police officers executing a "no knock" warrant on the WRONG home, ended her promising life. To date, NO CHARGES have been filed against the involved officers. Three months is too long to wait for justice!

As a Birthday tribute to Breonna, I am sending a message to Kentucky Atty Gen Daniel Cameron & Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer demanding justice!

We would be inclined to think it is just the murder of George Floyd that has our streets filled. What I remember feeling in that moment was the casualness of all of the things we have experienced in this country.

There will be those that try to exploit the anger and mourning. Who would use this as an opportunity to sow that discontent, to distract from what the real issues, and use criminality to poison the conversations around what we ought to be talking about.

STATEMENT FROM URBAN LEAGUE LEADERS


The Leaders of the Urban League Movement, including National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial and all affiliate Presidents, issued the following statement in response to the civil unrest sweeping the nation:

Our communities are overwhelmed with grief. We are heartsick over the inhumanity we have witnessed in the recent deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. We are appalled by the callous response from the authorities who shrugged in the face of evil

Cities across the nation have erupted in anguish over the recent As civil rights leaders who are committed to racial justice, we share the protesters’ anguish, and the heartbreak of the communities where uprisings have turned violent.

There are those who are inciting violence and mayhem. And there are those engaged in peaceful protest. No one should assume they are same people, and we refute any attempt to discredit the just cause for which people are marching based on infiltrators bent on sabotage. We support the right of citizens to engage in peaceful protest. We condemn the use of excessive force to dispel demonstrations.

We are hearing what Martin Luther King, Jr., famously called “the language of the unheard.” When George Floyd begged for his life as Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee into Floyd’s throat, he was unheard. The onlookers pleading with Chauvin to stop were unheard.

The cries for justice have gone unheard long enough.

The long-overdue arrests of Ahmaud Arbery’s killers and one of the officers involved in George Floyd’s death are merely a first step in a long journey.

The Urban League Movement has proposed specific recommendations for police reform and accountability. These include the widespread use of body cameras and dashboard cameras, revision of use-of-force policies, officer training and hiring standards, and the immediate appointment of independent prosecutors to investigate police misconduct.

But even more than these measures, we need a revision of our culture. It’s a culture that teaches a white woman walking her dog in Central Park that racially-motivated police brutality is a weapon she can use to enforce her own preferred social code.

As we pursue these measures to reform the police in our communities, we call upon all community leaders, elected officials and social institutions to join us in pursuing policies that promote racial reconciliation.

We are once again saddened & outraged by the unjust killing of another unarmed Black man — #GeorgeFloyd.

We stand with the Urban League of the Twin Cities + champions for justice across the country in calling for the arrest and criminal prosecution of the former #Minneapolis police officers involved in the brutal death of George Floyd.

Mayor #JacobFrey's swift action in terminating the officers involved is commendable, but it is only a first step. Officers who behave that way when cameras are trained on them cannot be given the benefit of the doubt when they believe no one is watching. Their records must be thoroughly examined in light of the racism and inhumanity they displayed during this deadly assault.

We cannot allow ourselves to grow numb to such brazen flouting of the law and human decency. George Floyd's death must be met with justice.

Keep speaking up. Keep lifting George Floyd’s family + loved ones in prayer. And keep the pressure on ✊🏾.
