26-year-old award-winning EMT Breonna Taylor was killed in her sleep by three undercover officers almost two months ago. Only one out of the three have been fired and no charges have been made.

My name is _____. I am a resident of _____ and I am emailing today to demand accountability for the racist murder of Breonna Taylor.
I demand that charges be pressed against all officers involved in this heinous killing, including Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and officers Brett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove. They should all be fired, and should be charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for murder.
Breonna Taylor was an ER technician, working tirelessly to help others during this global pandemic. She should be alive today. She would be alive today if it were not for the gross abuse of power and white supremacy exhibited by the Louisville Police Department. All officers involved must face consequences for this murder in order to provide her family with justice and to deter law enforcement from committing racist and brutal acts of violence against communities of color.
In addition, I demand that we provide more support for community efforts and organizations that work to prevent police brutality and violence.
Encourage your friends and family to get involved. The more people contributing, the greater the chance of achieving justice for Breonna. Don’t give up on her.
