SAY HER NAME
On March 13, Breonna Taylor, a 26 year old African-African EMT, was killed by the Louisville police department when the police entered her apartment shortly after midnight and fired numerous shots. It has been 141 days since her death and the police officers involved have not been arrested. We will continue to #Sayhername.
