“And the reason I would like to see justice for Breonna Taylor is because I’m the father of two teenage daughters, and I would like to know that they’re going to be able to grow up in a world and be safe in their homes even long after I’m gone,” says one signer.
“I signed the petition because that could have easily been me,” says another signer.
“We share the same birthday, to the exact day, and now she’s no longer here,” says a third signer.
These are just a snapshot of the heartfelt stories people are sharing about why they’re taking action to demand justice for Breonna Taylor.

We cannot wait another month to get justice. 11 million petition signers and more than 55,000 phone calls to Kentucky lawmakers are putting pressure on decision-makers to act. Your action now will keep this movement growing.
Say her name. Keep speaking up. Supporters aren’t going to rest until those responsible are held accountable for the death of Breonna Taylor.
