Activists and Celebrities to Kick Off ‘BreonnaCon’ in Louisville to Demand Justice for Breonna Taylo
It’s been five months since Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black EMT worker, was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department officers while sleeping in her home. Yet, inconceivably, no one has been charged for her death. Activists, however, are amplifying the calls for justice.
Until Freedom, an organization geared toward fighting systemic and racial injustice, announced BreonnaCon, a multi-day event in Louisville, Kentucky, to direct resources, talent, and energy towards achieving justice for Taylor.
The event starts tomorrow, Aug. 22, and will culminate Aug. 25 with a massive demonstration.
According to a press release, this “first-of-its-kind community convention” will include workshops, training, women’s and men’s empowerment programs, a school supplies giveaway, community BBQ, and a Faith Revival at Kingdom Fellowship Center.
“BreonnaCon will engage, activate, and transform the Louisville community by building a comprehensive slate of programming that will amplify the urgent need for Justice for Breonna,” said Until Freedom Co-Founder Tamika Mallory. “BreonnaCon will address a number of issues impacting the community including food insecurity.”
