TUESDAY, March 2

Ride For Breonna
Jefferson Square Park
Free  |  4 p.m.
Join a caravan to demand that the Kentucky legislature ban no-knock warrants and pass Breonna’s Law, sponsored by state Rep. Attica Scott. The bill recently was assigned to the House’s Judiciary Committee, but another bill that would only regulate no-knock warrants by Republican Senate President Robert Stivers has already been passed by the Senate. Supporters of Scott’s law will meet at Jefferson Square Park in Louisville and drive to the Capitol in Frankfort to “make our voices heard.” There will be speakers, including Scott, attorney Sam Aguiar, Louisville mayoral candidate Shameka Parrish-Wright and The Hope Buss founder and minister Stachelle Bussey. You can also contact the leaders of the House Judiciary Committee, Reps. Ed Massey and Kim Banta to demand a hearing for Attica’s bill. Or, text “SIGN PEZYWK” to 50409.  Contact information for Massey and Banta can be found here.
