Oprah Winfrey and her crew at O, the Oprah Magazine not only featured Breonna Taylor on one of the magazine’s final covers, the first-ever O Magazine cover to feature someone other than the media mogul herself in 20 years of publication, but they are also going even further in their quest for justice for Breonna Taylor and her family.

The magazine has sponsored 26 billboards to be erected around Louisville, where Taylor worked and lived until she was shot and killed by police in her home while she slept on March 13. Police tried to enter with a “no-knock” warrant and not knowing police were at the door, Taylor’s boyfriend fired a warning shot hoping to scare away intruders. Police, in turn, open-fired on the couple. The person police were looking for in the warrant not only did not live in Taylor’s home, but he was also in custody at another precinct across town. Neither Taylor nor her boyfriend had any criminal record and Taylor has recently been employed as an EMT in the city.

The billboards direct passersby to untilfreedom.com, “an intersectional social justice organization rooted in the leadership of diverse people of color to address systemic and racial injustice.” Winfrey and her crew aren’t letting go and neither should you. Taylor’s family deserves justice in this case. Here are ways you can help, with an action petition from Daily Kos and suggestions from Until Freedom on who to call to get justice in this case.

Call Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer for justice in Breonna Taylor case
Call KY AG Daniel Cameron
Call Interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder

It seems the only thing that gets the attention of uncivil servants is MONEY. So, out-of-state folks who purchase KY products, DONT. Eventually, Kentucky will get the message that Americans are furious at institutional racism. Breonna Taylor’s murder ISN’T business as usual – ANYWHERE.
