National Coalition Of 100 Black Women Stands In Support Of Breonna Taylor’s Family

Thursday, September 24, 2020

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Incorporated stands in support of the family of the late Breonna Taylor as they deal with not only the circumstances of Breonna’s death but now with the outcome of the Grand Jury seated for this case. Media outlets have just reported that one former officer has been indicted and two other officers who fired shots have not been charged. 

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Incorporated advocates on behalf of Black women and girls in the areas of Health, Education, and Economic Empowerment. We find the results of this Grand Jury to be heinous in nature and a serious travesty of justice. 

We ask that our organization’s members and all those regardless of ethnicity stand as one in believing that Black Lives Matter. If you choose to express your support, make safety and respectfulness your priority in Louisville, Kentucky and around the country. Peaceful protest is without a doubt our right; let us not detract from the importance of this issue by engaging in acts with the potential for destruction of life and property while exercising this right.    

Be mindful that one of the most effective means of pursuing change and future justice is by exercising our constitutional rights to vote. It is extremely important that we use our ballots on Nov. 3, as well as in every election going forward, to place elected officials in office who will make judicial decisions that will prevent situations such as that which occurred with Breonna and so many others.  

While the election of a President who has empathy for all citizens regardless of ethnicity and economic status is important, be also mindful that the election of local and state officials have a direct impact on our daily lives. 

We stand together as one for a resolution that will give peace to the Taylor family and all of us who have had to deal with these injustices that have been propagated in our society.

Call to Action: Reach out to your local, state and federal officials. State your concerns. Demand changes in laws and legislations. Remember, if we want change, we must vote.
