Breonna Taylor case outcome suggests officers are above the law, says legal expert

”What the Kentucky prosecutor said today is that, when three police officers barge into your house in the middle of the night, and shoot you six times, that’s not a crime. I think that that’s a legal, prosecutorial way of saying that Black lives don’t matter…It’s against the law to do what they did, in my opinion. And yet these officers are now above the law.” – Professor Paul Butler of Georgetown Law School.

As many Asian Americans have been vulnerable to racist attacks, following the misleading and racist terms used by the President in relation to the coronavirus. “If we get out in force and help Joe and Kamala win, this could be the major political awakening that Asian Americans have been waiting for a generation or more,” Yang said in a virtual fundraiser.

THURSDAY

National Women for Biden Training with Hillary Rodham Clinton 7:00 p.m. EST

Thu 9/24 – Thu 10/8

On Thursday, September 24, Women for Biden will host a national training on resiliency in the face of multiple national crises and the recent loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Hillary Rodham Clinton and Alexis McGill Johnson.

Women across the country are currently bearing the brunt of the COVID-19 crisis, filling essential roles in the economy and balancing work and families responsibilities. Americans have long been inspired by Justice Ginsburg and her work advancing equality and opportunity, and her passing has left many feeling a great sense of loss. The future of the Supreme Court has also made the stakes in this election blatantly clear.

This training will feature Hillary Rodham Clinton and Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Alexis McGill Johnson, who will discuss what’s at stake for women and how we energize and mobilize in the final weeks of the campaign. This event is part of an ongoing series of national Women for Biden events to engage women supporters to help get out the vote.
