Beyoncé Writes Letter Advocating Justice For Breonna Taylor

June 16, 2020

On Sunday, June 14, Beyoncé sent an open letter to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, demanding that charges be pressed against the officers who were involved with the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

Breonna Taylor was a victim of a narcotics raid gone wrong when officers executing a no-knock warrant fired shots that ended up killing her while she was still in bed.

The Louisville city council introduced an ordinance called “Breonna’s Law” which bans “no-knock” warrants from being used by the department going forward.

Despite the unanimous vote to approve the ordinance, protestors still took to the streets to demand justice for yet another victim of police brutality.

In the open letter, Beyoncé said:

“While Breonna’s Law passed in Louisville and federal legislation has been introduced that will also ban no-knock warrants these small steps in the right direction are painful reminders that there has still been no justice for Breonna Taylor or her family.”
