The program will call for action from local and state government officials, voter registration and social media awareness for Taylor’s case.
On March 13th, Breonna Taylor, a 26-year old Black emergency medical technician was shot eight times in Louisville, KY by plain clothes officers serving a narcotics search warrant without knocking at her apartment. No drugs were found. Taylor’s story has sparked protests and demonstrations all over the country.
Irving has a history of raising awareness to police brutality. Highlighting Taylor’s case was important to the Brooklyn Nets star. Irving says, “It’s critical to magnify how these unjust behaviors and practices are directly impacting Black women.”
