Breonna Taylor Essential Worker Collection
Breonna Taylor was an award-winning EMT and first responder in Louisville, KY, who loved helping her patients and her community. "She was an essential worker. She had to go to work," her mother, Tamika Palmer said of her dedication to standing on the frontlines of this pandemic. "She didn't have a problem with that."
On the night of March 13th, the Louisville Metro Police executed a warrant, looking for drugs they never found, reportedly trafficked by a person who did not live with Breonna or in her complex-and whom they already had in custody.
They sprayed her home with 20 rounds, shooting Breonna 8 times, killing her in her bed.
Neither the Louisville Metro Police nor Mayor Greg Fischer have given her mother any answers. "Not one person has talked to me. Not one person has explained anything to me," Tamika Palmer, Taylor’s mother, said in an interview. "I want justice for her. I want them to say her name. There’s no reason Breonna should be dead at all."
With this collection I plan to honor Breonna Taylor by doing the following:
1. I’ve partnered with C.Marie Designs to donate masks to protesters, people in underserved communities, leaders, and activists for upcoming Marches in Chicago.
2. The remainder of my proceeds will be donated towards the Justice for Breonna Taylor GoFund me.
