Happy Birthday, Breonna

Breonna, Happy 27th Birthday.

We wish you were spending today with friends and family — celebrating life and blowing out birthday candles. Instead, we are chanting your name in your memory and in solidarity.

We’re still out here a month later demanding that the officers who murdered you are fired, stripped of their pensions, and charged with homicide. We’re still crying out for transformative change in Louisville, KY and beyond.

But right now, Breonna, we want to express our love — a giant communal love letter.

Share your birthday wish for Breonna today, on her 27th birthday. Help us write one collective love letter to a woman who should be spending this day in the loving company of friends, family, her boyfriend, and her EMT colleagues…

Breonna, your entire life and career were centered around helping others, as an award-winning EMT and first responder in Louisville, KY, with a beautiful, loving smile. Even during COVID-19, you risked your own health and safety to selflessly serve your community.

It is unjust that your life was cut short at the hands of police violence. It is unjust that you’re not here making new memories, changing the world, or lighting up rooms with your bright smile.

Breonna, we love you, and we will fight for justice to ensure that your legacy of change will continue on.

Happy birthday and rest in peace, beautiful.
