URGENT -- Billboards for Breonna
Sep 23, 2020 —
URGENT & TIME-SENSITIVE — BREONNA TAYLOR, MITCH MCCONNELL
It has been well over six months, and there has been no justice or peace for Breonna Taylor. So we’re taking our fight offline, into the real world, and are looking for your help to place over 100 billboards in Louisville and Frankfort Kentucky to demand an end to no-knock warrants.
I have been fortunate to work with an incredible team from AdQuick.com, and we’re going to throw everything we can at Mitch McConnell. But we desperately and urgently need your help.
We will launch a national campaign, starting in Kentucky, calling on Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans to introduce and pass the Justice for Breonna Act onto the Senate floor.
Attorney General Daniel Cameron has not only stolen but muffled the voices of the American people — but we are still citizens of the United States, and though you may feel ignored and disempowered, the power of the government is derived completely by you. Only one of the officers, Brett Hankison, has been charged -- he was charged with "wanton endangerment" -- it is an unacceptable slap in the face.
We’ve all seen the monstrous behavior from Senator McConnell; his hypocrisy, his ignorance, his lack of empathy — we saw how he ignored late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish, and if given the opportunity, he will do the same to Breonna Taylor.
We cannot allow him to win. Please, please, please, donate to the crowdfunding campaign for Breonna: https://www.adquick.com/self-service/campaigns/breonna
Any amount will help. Using these funds, we will pay for billboards and digital ads and blanket the entire state of Kentucky (which is McConnell’s home state) and show him that he cannot continue to destroy this country and ignore the voice of the public. If he wants to keep his seat and his job, he must deliver justice immediately. Breonna should still be alive today. Her life mattered. Please help us get justice for Breonna Taylor.
Officers John Mattingly, Brett Hankison, Joshua Jaynes, and Myles Cosgrove continue to defend their actions and reject all measures of accountability. They stole the life of an innocent woman, and expect America to accept their actions as just and fair.
This movement is far from over. We will not give up until Breonna truly receives the justice she deserves.
The Justice for Breonna Act — please donate to the crowdfunder — you can donate from all fifty states, and from any country internationally — even one dollar will help us get justice for Breonna.
Get this legislation passed not only for Breonna, but to save the lives that we will lose senselessly to no-knock warrants.
Donate, and call your Senators.
Don’t let her become another name.
Let’s do this.
Justice for Breonna Taylor, today, tomorrow, and forever.
Please share this crowdfunded campaign on your social medias and with loved ones! Share this campaign with #BillboardsForBreonna -- we are counting on all of you. Let's get justice for Breonna, together.
EDIT: I always want to be transparent with all signers. Firstly, after consulting with Sam Aguiar, Breonna Taylor’s family’s lawyer, I was able to confirm that her family supports the national Justice for Breonna Act legislation, and support our plan to getting the bill through Congress. Secondly, McConnell’s base is generally comprised of Trump supporters, and because he is a Senator from the state of Kentucky (which is traditionally conservative) only constituents from the state of Kentucky can vote for or against him. However, Kentucky is a generally conservative state — he is currently up ten points in the polls. I truly disagree with McConnell with every fiber of my being, but it is extremely unlikely that he will be unseated in the upcoming Senatorial race. For these reasons (because Breonna’s family supports this legislation and wants to see it passed, and because it is highly unlikely that McConnell will be unseated in the near future) we are focusing on working to get the law passed through Congress — this law will, hopefully, create permanent, systemic change. This effort will ensure that nobody dies the way Breonna did, ever again. The billboards are part of a larger picture, a larger effort to establish the Justice for Breonna Act federally. We are buying media in order to ensure Mitch McConnell supports the legislation in the Senate. Oftentimes, media plays a huge role in creating a world of difference — media campaigns were what helped to boost many Democratic candidates in their 2018 congressional races. Lastly, I am a student that just wants to see justice, and help to create a nation that all Americans can feel safe in and proud of. It is highly inappropriate to send me death threats, threats of exposing/leaking my personal information, and threats against my family. We can have a difference in opinion, but it is not appropriate to attack me on my personal pages and to threaten my safety.
