Police killed 1,099 people in 2019, 24% of which were Black — despite being only 13% of the population. These past few weeks have presented us with a litany of stories that illustrate exactly why we all need to loudly affirm that Black lives matter, and take action consistently and without being asked. We must demand justice for the state-sanctioned murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others. While the police officers responsible for George Floyd’s death have been charged, there is still more work to be done:
  • Call the Louisville Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office at (502) 595-2300 and demand that Breonna Taylor’s murderers are fired and brought to justice.

  • Support the National Bail Out, a Black-led and Black-centered collective of abolitionist organizers, lawyers, and activists building a community-based movement to support folks and end systems of pretrial detention and ultimately mass incarceration.

  • Commit to doing anti-racist work, here is a list of resources to educate yourself on allyship. 

  • Vote

Let’s tackle these strange times together — with resources, tools, and more to help women get back on their feet and chart a new path forward.

IS DEFUNDING THE POLICE POSSIBLE?

WATCH WING TV

As protests continue to erupt across the U.S. in response to the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many more, it’s time to consider: how do we stop police killings of Black people from happening in the first place? Josie Duffy, President of The Appeal and host of the Justice in America Podcast, and Derecka Purnell, Guardian columnist, social movement lawyer, and activist imagine what justice looks like, and what a future with police reform, or no police at all, could look like.
