Protesters are gathering tonight in Louisville, New York and Washington, DC, following the Kentucky attorney general’s decision to not charge officers directly with Breonna Taylor’s death.

One of the three officers involved in Taylor’s death was charged today with three counts of wanton endangerment of the first degree. No officers were charged directly with her death.

Crowds of demonstrators marched along Black Lives Matter Plaza in DC.

Several hundred people gathered outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and chanted, “we want justice for Breonna.”

Angelo Pinto wore a black mask that read “Breonna Taylor” as he and others marched through the streets of Louisville, Kentucky, where a city curfew goes into effect at 9 p.m. local time.

“No justice, no peace,” the protesters chanted. Pinto is the co-founder of Until Freedom, a social justice organization fighting against systemic and racial injustice.
