Tamika Palmer is asking the president-elect to hold true to his promises made while he was on the campaign trail.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Breonna Taylor’s mother is taking her fight for justice to the White House.

In an open letter to President-elect Joe Biden, Tamika Palmer calls on him to bring change within the justice system and hold police accountable by keeping promises he made during the campaign.
