KENTUCKY — For more than 150 straight days, Jefferson Square Park has been the epicenter of Louisville’s protests and demonstrations over the police killing of Breonna Taylor back in March of this year.

And rain or shine, there have consistently been groups as small as a dozen people, to more than a thousand, demanding racial justice while also advocating for systemic change from local leaders and law enforcement agencies in Kentucky’s largest city.

Charles Booker serves in the Kentucky House of Representatives for the 43rd district, and is currently Kentucky's youngest Black state lawmaker.

During this In Focus Kentucky, Booker explains why he is continuing to use his platform to advocate for major changes in the racial justice movement, currently taking place within his hometown of Louisville and beyond.
