LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Multiple groups from outside Kentucky are traveling to Louisville this weekend to protest the death of Breonna Taylor.
On Friday, members of the Colorado Black Women for Political Action arrived in Louisville.
“We were welcomed with open arms here,” Kat Traylor told Spectrum News 1. “We have some elected officials that are with us right now. We have another group called Frontline Resistance,” Traylor adds.
In all, she estimates 30 people are traveling to Louisville from the Centennial State.
Shenika Carter has also traveled from Colorado but says she isn’t affiliated with any one group.
“Once we start to show up and realize when one community hurts we all hurt. We are all one community,” Carter said. “You can expect some powerful, powerful people from Colorado to speak along with local activists here in Louisville and then we are going to end with a march."
The Not F****** Around Coalition (NFAC), a Black armed militia group is also planning a march or “formation,” as members refer to it on Saturday.
“Anybody that’s coming here, they are wanting the same thing they are wanting justice for Breonna Taylor,” Tyra Walker told Spectrum News 1. Walker is co-chair of the Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression. “We’re here in support of the young adults,” Walker said.
