- Contact Officials: Minimal script to use in calls and emails: I’m [calling/emailing/contacting] you for two reasons.
- First, the world is waiting for you to hold the officers who killed Breonna Taylor accountable and have them arrested for her murder.
- Second: Immediately drop the
felonyALL charges against the people who gathered peacefully at the home of the Attorney General’s house. This action was necessitated by your inaction. You’ve had four months to do the right thing.
- Both these issues together are a black-eye for Louisville and the state of Kentucky. Stop digging your hole deeper. Bring justice to her killers, apologize to her family and make reparations as best you can.
- Additional if you want it: I’m not from Louisville, nor from Kentucky, but as Martin Luther King, Jr. said in his famous “Letter from the Birmingham Jail”:
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” What happens regarding Ms. Taylor and her protesters affects this entire country.
