It’s been six months since Breonna Taylor was killed.
Six months since Louisville police broke into her apartment while she slept. Six months since police fired multiple rounds of bullets into her apartment. Six months of millions calling for justice and taking to the streets to demand accountability. Six months of Kentucky officials like Attorney General Daniel Cameron staying silent.
But the demands for justice for Breonna Taylor won’t stop. Not until the systemic failures that led to Breonna’s murder are addressed.
Tonight, during the opening Sunday night game of the NFL season, two ads will run in Kentucky showing the power of this movement, and urging people to keep the pressure on Kentucky lawmakers to get justice.
The deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Rayshard Brooks, along with the shooting of Jacob Blake and countless other acts of police violence have put the issue of police reform in the spotlight this summer.
New powerful legislation – the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act – would help address this issue. Democrats and Republicans came together to propose the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. This law will ban discriminatory profiling, chokeholds, carotid holds and no-knock warrants in drug cases. It will require training, a national police misconduct registry and use of body cams.
Take a moment now to tell your members of Congress to support this. Add your name to this petition and demand your lawmakers support the passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

Millions of voices are demanding justice. Millions of voters want real, systemic police reform. And millions of Americans are going to keep saying Breonna Taylor’s name until there is accountability for her murder.
