Say Her Name
Jun 6, 2020 —
Breonna’s name was trending on Twitter all day yesterday. Governor Beshear acknowledged her death on his social media. We all did that.
Breonna’s story is on Rolling Stone, CNN, Cosmopolitan, and so many other notable media outlets — we are getting her name out there. We are telling the whole world what happened to her. We will not be silenced. We will say her name.
I cried reading some of your tweets and birthday wishes to her.
I want justice for her so badly that it hurts. I am working on making direct contact with the office of the Governor and Attorney General; if any progress is made, I'll let you all know.
Thank you all for being a part of her birthday yesterday. I hope Breonna had a wonderful birthday in heaven.
Rest in power, Bre. We’ll take care of things from here.
* By the way: the doctrine of habeas corpus has been suspended in New York. You can now be arrested for indefinite periods of time without being charged with a violation of a criminal statute. If you or anyone you know is going to protest in New York City, please be careful. Take care of each other -- they are being ruthless. I posted a little more about what a suspension of habeas corpus means on my Instagram, and if any of you want a legal explanation, feel free to message me.
