Lexington Breonna’s Law Town Hall

Lexington Breonna’s Law Town Hall on Monday, March 1

What would a Breonna's Law look like in Lexington, and why is it important and necessary? How should it mirror or differ from the recent ordinance passed in Louisville? What are the next steps?

These and many other questions will be discussed at a virtual Town Hall to be held on Monday, March 1 at 6 p.m.

“Anyone concerned with justice must be concerned about the injustice of No-Knock Warrants against marginalized communities throughout the state,” said Reverend Dr. D. Anthony Everett, executive director of Mission Behind Bars and Beyond (www.MissionB3.org). “We acknowledge the injustice done, not only to Breonna Taylor and her family, but to each of Kentucky’s Black and impoverished communities, also.”

A powerful panel of speakers will join State Representative Attica Scott for the town hall. Scott is the sponsor of Breonna’s Law, House Bill 21, in the General Assembly.

Other panelists will be:

  • James Brown, Urban County Council representative, District 1
  • Keturah Herron, ACLU-KY Policy Strategist
  • Shauntrice Martin, KFTC organizer
  • Reverend Dr. Michael Robinson, pastor of Total Grace Church
  • Denotra Spruill Gunther, former Assistant Fayette County Attorney.
  • Defense Attorney Daniel Whitley
  • Rev. Clark Williams, Shiloh Baptist Church and the People's Campaign

Moderators for the town hall will be Dr. Arnold Farr of the University of Kentucky and “Pastor E” Reverend Dr. D. Anthony Everett of Mission Behind Bars and Beyond.

Racial Justice is not just an end to the visible injustices but a fight toward justice for all especially Black, Brown and poor people,” said Rev. Don Gillette.

The town hall is co-sponsored by Kentuckians For The Commonwealth, Mission Behind Bars and Beyond and Lex-Stand for Breonna's Law Coalition.
