The disturbing events that happened over the past 3 months have been difficult to watch. As a black business owner and black woman, it is my god-given duty to use my platform to share the devastation and provide ways to rectify them. George, Ahmaud, and Breonna all had a family that loved them greatly. They did not deserve to die in the heinous manner in which they did. All of the lives lost due to racism and systematic oppression deserve justice. We are on a mission to ERADICATE racism, white supremacy, and HATE once and for all. TOGETHER we STAND, DIVIDED we FALL. Check out the ways you can help ✊🏾
PETITIONS TO SIGN
- Justice for Breonna Taylor "One month ago, a division of the Louisville Police Department performed an illegal, unannounced drug raid on her home. Not a single officer announced themselves before ramming down her door and firing 22 shots, shooting Breonna 8 times, killing her."
