His remarks came on the second day of Breonnacon, a series of events intended to uplift the local community as they continued to demand justice and systemic change in the wake of her killing. As WLKY reports, the families of George Floyd, Antwon Rose Jr. and Trayvon Martin attended the conference, held at the historically Black school Simmons College, on Monday.

Despite months of inaction, local and national activists vowed to keep up the pressure until charges are brought against the police officers who killed Taylor. Kentucky state lawmaker Attica Scott also announced that she would be pushing forward with “Breonna’s Law,” which would ban “no-knock” warrants across the state. (The practice, which allows cops to forcibly enter property without announcing themselves, was already banned in Louisville.)

“We’re going to stand together. We’re going to stand tall and be here for these families,” Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, told attendees.


The conference wraps Tuesday, culminating in a large-scale march to the LMPD’s training academy.
