GLAD joins with all who are grieving, angry and calling for justice following yesterday’s news of the indictment decision in the death of Breonna Taylor.

Breonna Taylor should be alive, working at her job as an EMT, and looking forward to time with family and loved ones. Our hearts are with her family and community as they now must experience the anguish of yesterday’s decision while grieving her death.

Breonna Taylor’s life as a Black woman mattered. We must continue to push for change in our systems of justice, policing, and all systems that continue to target Black people until the truth that all Black lives matter is embraced, uncontested, and fully realized throughout our society.
