At UltraViolet, we fight at the intersection of racism, white supremacy, and patriarchy. We must all take intentional action every day, and for the rest of our lives. Let’s all pledge to continue to show up, educate ourselves, take concrete anti-racist actions, and empower and build political power for Black and Indigenous women, LGBTQIA+ women, and women of color.

The following are resources to get started, including facts, concrete anti-racist actions to take, and upcoming events hosted by UltraViolet:

Take Action on Behalf of Breonna Taylor

Breonna Taylor

Take Action on Behalf of Breonna Taylor

It has been months since three plainclothes police officers shot and killed Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician in Louisville, Ky., in her own home. Breonna was shot at least eight times, and then left without medical attention that could have saved her life. To date, only one officer has been fired from his job, and none of the officers have been charged with her murder. Tens of thousands of UltraViolet members have signed the petition, made phone calls, and donated towards a television ad and other actions demanding justice for Breonna. We will not stand down until there is accountability for her murder.

SHARE THE FACTS on why supporting survivors means defunding the police

Survivors, including those from police officer families, deserve better than our current antiquated and punitive system. That means redirecting resources from the police to new community-based solutions, in which survivors can safely report abuse and hold their perpetrators accountable.
