Nash is among the celebrities advocating for justice for Breonna Taylor 150 days after she was killed. A-list stars including Olivia Wilde, Amy Schumer, Regina King, Jessica Alba and Amanda Seales also joined in posting to Instagram to show off shirts that read "Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor." Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was killed in her Louisville, Kentucky, home by Louisville Metro Police in March. She and her boyfriend were in their home when police made a late-night raid on the wrong address, and Taylor was shot eight times. Though one officer was fired after Taylor's death, none of the officers involved have been arrested or charged. The shirts, which are part of a campaign by Phenomenal and the WNBA, also feature a portrait of Taylor on the back, which was created by Arlyn García. "It’s been 150 days since Breonna Taylor was murdered in her sleep by Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove -- and her killers have not been charged," the celebrities' posts read. "Too often Black women who die from police violence are forgotten." See even more of the posts here.
