Breonna Taylor Deserved Better

We stand with all who loved Breonna Taylor, Black Lives Matter, and activists across the nation and world demanding justice for her murder.

Systemic and interpersonal racism led to Breonna’s murder, and even in death, have prevented her from having justice. Racism is a public health crisis. We must find ways to dismantle the systems of oppression that hurt our communities.

HealthConnect One continues to stand in solidarity with Black people against racism in all its forms. It is critical that we continue using our collective voice against injustice and centering Black women and their families. We will continue to say Breonna Taylor’s name, and work with birth workers, partner organizations, funders, and our supporters to lift-up and protect Black moms, babies, and their families.

If you would like to make a donation to Breonna Taylor’s family you can do so here.
