Riotheart wasn't able to attend the full list of events, but if you are interested in more from the day, check out this LIVE footage from Tara Bassett.
Today, following that anniversary, Attorney Ben Crump hosted a press conference where he was joined by Tamika Palmer (mother of Breonna Taylor), Attorney Lonita Baker, members of Until Freedom, and more. Their plea was that the Department of Justice steps in to investigate Breonna's case.

In 2020, LMPD botched a "No Knock Warrant," which lead to the death of Breonna Taylor. It wasn't until after George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis Police that people began to question Breonna's case. These questions spurred international protests in the summer of 2020. Despite the outcry of civil rights activists, all officer-involved were either not charged or found not guilty on all charges.
