Wait, There’s More

Within her cover feature, Mallory heavily focuses on the motivation and goal of her Until Freedom organization. She also speaks on their determination to fight for criminal justice reform and ending gun violence.

“The reason why Until Freedom has decided to fight for Breonna Taylor is because we realise that when it comes to some of these issues – criminal justice, police accountability, gun violence awareness and prevention – women are often an afterthought, if included in the conversation at all. Until Freedom partners with a number of organisations that are focused on women who have been victims of gun violence. We don’t often see stories of women who have been shot. And, unfortunately, oftentimes, it happens as a result of men, and either the fragility that some men are dealing with, unable to properly participate in relationships, and/or it happens as a result of women being in the wrong place at the wrong time.” (British Vogue)

Before You Go

A few days ago, Mallory let loose on producer JW Lucas after he downplayed the importance of demanding justice for slain Black woman Breonna Taylor. She made a public calling for hip-hop artists to distance themselves from working with him.
