Breonna’s death is representative of a crisis for women and girls of color that is truly national in scale. Our courts and judicial system must hold people accountable when they act with such disregard for human life. While we continue to believe that the justice system plays a critical role in our nation, the decision to indict Officer Hankison only for reckless behavior, and the failure to indict any officers for their role in Breonna’s death, points to flaws in our system that must be addressed.

#JusticeforBre #UntiljusticejustisThe charges announced today against former officer Brett Hankison do not meet the gravity of the crime committed. The decision to indict Hankison only for reckless behavior, and the failure to indict any officers for their role in Breonna Taylor’s death, points to flaws in our system that must be addressed. This decision in her case and the recent passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg makes clear that our pursuit for justice and civil rights must continue, #UntilJusticeJustIs.

On what would have been her 107th birthday, YWCA Great Lakes Bay Region honors the life and legacy of Dr. Dorothy Irene Height. As a former YWCA leader, Dr. Height played an instrumental role in our organizational structure. During her time at YWCA, she created diverse programs and oversaw the integration of all YWCAs nationwide, and she established YWCA’s Center for Racial Justice. She was integral to YWCA adopting our One Imperative, “to eliminate racism wherever it exists and by any means necessary.” #OnAMission #WomensHistoryMonth #ywca #womensempowerment #eliminatingracism ...
