Keep Saying Her Name: We Still Demand Justice for Breonna Taylor

Today, we continue to support our communities and join the struggle for broad accountability, to hold those liable who enact violence against and harbor disdain for vulnerable people, especially Black womxn. Upon hearing the grand jury’s decision not to charge the police who took the life of Breonna Taylor, we were again tossed into a moment of grief, a moment that pushes us farther away from a desired world that truly values Black life. Breonna deserves more, and we deserve a world that deserves Breonna.

Black Political Statements Across Time

U.S. radical politics has often been riven with disputes about whether race, class, or gender issues should dominate policy, organizing, and advocacy.
