The billboards have the message of demanding the the police involved in the killing of Taylor to be arrested and charged. For those who want justice, a website link is also advertised for Until Freedom. The site is a social justice organization that fights against systemic and racial injustice. They have been integral in leading protests demanding justice for Taylor.
Taylor, was a 26-year-old emergency room technician that saw the end of her life at the hands of police. She was killed during a “no knock warrant” in her Louisville home on March 13.
