Oprah Winfrey, “O: The Oprah Magazine” and UntilFreedom.com have installed 26 billboards in Louisville, Kentucky to “demand that the police involved in killing Breonna Taylor be arrested and charged.”
There is a quote from Oprah on the billboards : “If you turn a blind eye to racism, you become an accomplice to it.”
Breonna was 26 years old when she was shot eight times and killed on March 13th 2020.
When you visit the UntilFreedom.com website the general public is asked to make three phone calls:
- To Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, 502-574-2003 to demand that the three officers who executed the no-knock warrant be fired.
- To Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, 502-696-5300 to demand that the three officers be charged.
- To Interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder, 502-574-7111 to demand that there be an investigation of the shooting and the information be turned over to the Attorney General and Breonna Taylor’s lawyers.
There is a fourth call to action for Louisville residents to call their city council members and demand a ban to no-knock warrants.
UntilFreedom.com is an “intersectional social justice organization rooted in the leadership of diverse people of color to address systemic and racial injustice.”
