Teaming up with Fashion Nova, Megan Thee Stallion is donating $ 100,000 to the Breonna Taylor Foundation on the anniversary of Taylor’s death.
It was through Instagram that Meg made the announcement to pass the sum to the foundation started by Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer. Palmer launched the Breonna Taylor Foundation shortly after police shot and killed her daughter while she slept in her bed a year ago in Louisville, Kentucky.
“Today a year ago, Breonna Taylor was tragically taken away from her family and friends”, read Megan’s Instagram post. “The Breonna name continues to be a catalyst for change and a powerful reminder that justice has yet to be done. Fashion Nova and I are proud to donate $ 100,000 to the @breonnataylorfoundation created by @tamikalpalmer to honor her daughter’s memory. “
On Saturday (March 13), many more gathered in Louisville to march in memory of Breonna with an ongoing agenda to achieve justice for women of color wrongfully killed or harmed at the hands of the police.
The Breonna Taylor Foundation is an instituted reminder of this struggle.
“The foundation’s primary mission is to support economic, social and racial justice through police reform and government accountability,” Megan explained about the organization. “The foundation also seeks to help young people develop their full potential, empowering them to participate in political processes and achieve better health, with tutoring programs for high school girls, after-school initiatives and educational support.”
