Justice for Breonna Taylor

 Breonna Taylor was twenty-six years old when shortly after midnight on March 13, Louisville police entered her apartment unannounced—and, after a brief confrontation with her boyfriend, shot her eight times. The officers have not been fired or charged.  Breonna was an award-winning EMT. Her mom says her daughter had plans to become a nurse, buy a house, and start a family. Now, she doesn’t even get to celebrate her birthday.  In our fight to remind the world that Black Lives Matter, we need to remember those Black lives also include Black women. So on what would’ve been her 27th birthday June 5, 2020, let’s speak her name: Breonna Taylor.  To support the cause for bringing justice to her killers, please click the link below and sign the petition.

Who Are We?

Truly Liberated Women is an organization of women who ‘s mission is to help women succeed after catastrophic circumstances. Often women and their children arrive at shelters and our transitional hotels with nothing but the clothes on their backs and in few cases, not even that. We find ourselves providing basic items such as undergarments, feminine hygiene items, hair products and the like. Survival becomes so hard that they often go back to the abuser to keep shelter over their heads. If they are fortunate enough to escape, they only have ninety days within the shelter to start over and be self sufficient. This is where Truly Liberated Women fills in the gap.


We have formed relationships with elected officials to help develop community based programs so that women in progressive neighborhoods are not left behind. This ensures that as new jobs are created through commercial development, women who have completed our program are trained in skills required to meet the needs of the job market thereby bolstering local economy and allowing them to be self-sufficient.

One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Eighty-Five percent of domestic violence victims are women. The cost of domestic violence exceeds 5.8 billions dollars, 4.1 of which is a direct result of medical expenses and mental health support. Victims of domestic violence have lost 8 million days of paid work due to the violence against them. This equates to 32, 000 full-time jobs and 5.6 million days of lost household productivity. In the meantime the household must still operate. While society has done a great job in determining the cause of domestic violence. TLW is more interested in the effects.  According to the United State Department of Health and Human Services there are approximately 12.8 million recipients of welfare. 19 percent need assistance for less than six months. Of the 1.8 million people on welfare. Women were also more likely than men to be on welfare. Between ages 16 to 24. 23.3 percent of women received welfare. Overall women of all races account for 55 percent of welfare recipients. What these statistics do not reflect are the root causes. What leads women to social assistance? While all women are not victims of domestic violence, it is still our responsibility to help break the mental acceptance of poverty and government dependence.



Through various initiatives, TLW intends to address this issue. To understand poverty in America, it is important to look behind these numbers to look at the actual living conditions of the individuals the government deems to be poor. For word “poverty” suggests destitution; an inability to provide a family with nutritious food, clothing, an reasonable shelter. Poverty has to be addressed both physically and mentally. It is not enough to write checks, this enables the recipient. They need to skills and tools required to pull themselves out of their current situation.

Our programs will re-engage women in the employment sector, help them broaden their horizons through peer counseling and most importantly become self-sufficient. This newly engaged workforce will be a contributing member of society that will continue to bolster the local economy and alleviate the strain on government programs.
