Across the United States demonstrators held rallies to honor the life and legacy of Breonna Taylor, a Black 26-year-old Louisville, Kentucky, woman who was killed by police in her home.

The billboard was unveiled as part of a week of action leading up to Taylor's death anniversary on March 13. Community members will be able to interact with the billboard as it travels through Louisville throughout the weekend.
