LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A group has set up a mobile billboard in honor of Breonna Taylor near the Louisville Metro Police Department Headquarters in downtown Louisville.

It was paid for by SisterSong and Black Lives Matter Louisville.

FULL COVERAGE: The Breonna Taylor case

The billboard has a photo of Taylor, one of her social media posts from Twitter, and the words “Breonna Deserved Reproductive Justice.”

The tweet says: “My daughter hasn’t even been conceived but she has a name already... that’s how ready I am.”

SisterSong said police brutality not only takes Black lives, but also the futures of Black communities and families, including the one Taylor dreamed of having.

“This is a reproductive injustice,” Chanelle Helm, an organizer with Black Lives Matter Louisville, said. “This woman looked forward to creating a family.”

The truck with the mobile billboard will drive around downtown Louisville this week passing by the offices of Mayor Greg Fischer, Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine, and LMPD Chief Erika Shields.
