Fight Against Police Brutality
In the last week, the media has called your attention to the murders of #BreonnaTaylor (EMT and a nursing student) killed in her home, #AhmaudArbery who was gunned down running in his neighborhood and just a few days ago #GeorgeFloyd a peace activist was suffocated with the knee of a police officer in custody. Even CNN show a black reporter #OmarJiminez being arrested on live TV during his coverage of the Minneapolis riots. Please join our Fight Against Police Brutality campaign below!

SIGN OUR PETITIONS
Here are the the petitions to sign to make sure all officers are held accountable:
Breonna Taylor was killed in Louisville when the police searched and came into her home without knocking looking for a person who had already been arrested and the officers were also in wrong neighborhood.
Sign our Lawyers Demand Breonna Taylor Killers Be Arrested and Charged petition. Click here. We also plan to present this petition to Attorney General Daniel Jay Cameron.
Call DA to have officers arrested and charged. The police report is also mostly blank: 502-735-1784
Backstory on protest ✊🏽: The protest she led ended up turning into a march of about 300, police say, that blocked Highway 101 and stopped traffic for nearly an hour.
A passenger vehicle was allegedly damaged and its rear window was smashed, with the glass falling on a four-year-old passenger in the back seat. Arata was later arrested as protesters began to leave. Just because she was the organizer the DA had decided to put the weight of the charges on her although she was a peaceful protestor.
***Updates on Previous Petitions***
We are heart broken 💔 that US soldier 🇺🇸 #VanessaGuillen still has not been found after she was sexually harassed by her superior. Those involved in her murder have been arrested (one committed suicide) and her body was found.
Rayshard at a Atlanta Wendy’s was killed by police being shot in the back as he was fleeing from being tazed after being found asleep in his car after drinking and celebrating with his family. He offered to walk home and also volunteered to take a breathalyzer and the cops still decided to arrest him where the struggle ensued. One officer has been fired and one is on administrative leave. We are demanding murder or felony murder be the charges. The officers involved in his shoot have been arrested and charged.
